A finished Green Dress

Hello TSKB Readers!

The green dress is at last finished and modeled. There have been -many- posts regarding this number. I don't think I will ever wear it without some sort or cardigan because despite my desperate tweaking, the zipper never came out as good as I had hoped.

Please! If you have tutorials on flawless invisible zipper installations, link them to me. There are many on the internet, but if I can have ones that are reader-approved, maybe I will have a successful zipper installation in the future.

The pants that I've been working on are almost finished--I just need to hem them. I have a final exam on Tuesday, but after that, I may post more than once in a week span. *gasp*

But for now, enjoy these two shots of Butterick 5029. Hopefully I'll get them on Burdastyle by the end of the year.


Pufferfish face. Because I loathe serious pictures.

Dress Inspiration

So, grad school + 3 preps of teaching + 1 new prep + gym = no real sewing,

I have been crafting, just slowly, sporadically, and not posting anything. There are pictures, though.

In the meantime, I saw this on discount at JCrew and I wanted to store it for inspiration. This dress looks super cute and super easy. And at $30 on clearance, I could pay for it. But, it seems too summery to buy now. I'd rather hold on to it and wait for spring.
