I wasn’t going to let myself sew today until I took care of the Amazon forest that has become my front yard. But, it rained last night and I certainly can’t mow the lawn when it’s wet. Right? Right?

All that’s left on McCall 5314 is attaching the bodice and skirt. I’m hoping to finish this dress today and start sewing the BWOF 9-2003-134. I got it cut out Thursday night. No muslin (it might be too slim in the lower thigh but that’s what control top pantyhose are for).

My mom is a full bird Colonel in the Army and retiring in a big ceremony in two weeks. I think this is the kind of dress that will stand the test of time in photos. Unlike my too thin eyebrows in the above photo from her last promotion ceremony.
