Hello my beautiful readers! So this is my Lonsdale dress from Tasia's sew along.
While I was shopping for fabric for this dress I came across a blue rayon that I thought would be perfect for a 1940s style play suit. Then I had to remind myself that I was shopping for the sew along and not for fabric that would be perfect for a pattern I didn't even have. This happens almost every time that I go fabric shopping. BUT, this time the fabric would also work for my intended project. (Happiness!)
The whole while that I was working on this dress, it appeared to me that I needed to where it in Hawaii. Really, wouldn't you readers have the same thoughts? It was so light and airy, and the print was meant to be worn on a beautiful island. Well friends, as I was checking the last of Tasia's posts, I noticed another blogger had posted this. That's right, I will be wearing this dress in Hawaii! (Now don't worry, I don't go around stalking bloggers and planing vacations around where they reside. Cherie and I have actually been friends since high school).
You may have noticed that I'm a little late in finishing my dress for the sew along. Well, I was only able finish my dress this weekend because my dearest was out of town. (He keeps me from sewing more than he knows). I was delighted that I was able to finish it while he was gone. However, this meant that I was out again to take my own pictures with the self timer. They didn't turn out as great as this previous post - but I think that was because the park was insanely busy. There is just something about holding a pose for ten seconds as a family of six goes by on there bikes, followed by Mr. Tri-athlete on his twenty mile jog, and then the couple that thinks the bike path is lovers lane. Yikes - note to self, next time find a more secluded spot for photos.

Live the moment, love life!
