Here is another “Get it done” item done! I bought this fabric last week. I also bought a pattern: McCall’s 6713. If you look at the link the girl is on a bike. Hopefully, I will actually be able to ride a bike in this dress. That would be awesome. I love the forties sort of style, and usually a wrap silhouette is flattering for me. I am a little unnerved by the shoulder pads, so I didn’t buy them. Having lived through the eighties once, I tend to cut out all shoulder pads out purchased garments. Also, as I have gained a little weight since the eighties, I feel like I probably don’t need them. In any case, I figured I would go back to the store and get them at the end if I wanted to. I had hoped to cut the dress this weekend but I didn’t get the fabric ironed. I did get the center of the ducky quilt sandwich basted, so I guess one morning of crawling around on my hands and knees per weekend is enough. I plan to have my intern quilt a little bit every day this week on the quilt, then may be next weekend I will get the dress cut out.
