Mother's Day part 2: Simplicity 3867

Since our Michigan weather was cold and rainy for most of the weekend, making it difficult to get out and work in my flower beds, I spent some time in my sewing studio making a new dress for myself for Mother's Day. The cheerful colors of the stylized flowers on this pretty stretch cotton sateen made me smile, and the pattern went together like a dream! I have no clue where I purchased this fabric that I found in my stash, maybe from Gorgeous Fabrics? I sure wish I would have sewn this dress up last Dec before our trip to Hawaii, it would have been perfect. Oh well :-)







I'm not sure it was even 40 degrees out yet, but Ken managed to snap a quick pic on our way to church:

I love the way this dress turned out, and it is the first piece completed on my list of garments to sew for my trip to New York City in a few weeks!
