Ooooh, i lurv it!

So I finished the Simplicity 2222 dress. Um, and I was super wrong. The skirt isn't terminally short, the pattern is just very long in the torso, at least it is for me. I did chop off 3 inches off the bottom of the dress (of the 6 inches that I added) before hemming. I don't like short skirts, especially for work, you know, 'cause sometimes you need to pick something up off the ground and I don't want to think about it too hard.

I'm so happy with the results. Giddily happy with the sewing I did. I was very patient and I enjoyed being that way, whereas usually I find it kind of painful. I must be growing up!

I rushed home every day after work this week to work on the dress and it was worth it, because I think I'm going to wear it for Casual Friday. Ok... picture onslaught.

hee hee, two red buttons, you know, just cause

waistline detail, i used elastic instead of cording

Even with the narrow back adjustment there's still a teeny bit too much fullness across the back but not too bad. I did use all the "petite" conversions which made most things land in the right place.
