Simplicity 3744 Threads finished!

I've finished another project. This one for my sister and if I can get her to let me post a picture, I will post later in the week! Edited 3-18: She let me post!! Originally started this dress last spring, but it is now finished and I hope she likes the finished product! It is made with a cotton shirting that is white with a light blue stripe. It looks like a very nice dress to wear on a hot day. The picture doesn't show the fabric very well because of the small light blue stripe. Oh well, it fits her very well, the only thing she will have to do is move the buttons on the back belt so that it doesn't hang down.

I then cleaned up the sewing room and serged the ends of more fabric and it is in the washing machine now. That is how I can tell if the fabric has been pre-washed once it is put away.
I think my next project is going to be........a pants muslin!! Yikes that is scary, but I have this really nice chocolate brown linen that I want a nice pair of pants out of and I bought this beautiful Italian cotton that is white with a choco brown stipe running through it and I want to make a nice blouse out of it and this will be a very nice outfit! That is my long term goal right now and in between that I have lots of knit that I want to make a Jalie sweetheart top and a vee nick tee out of. Sew much to do and sew little time!!!

On the weight loss front....21.2 pounds down!!! Yeah me.
