Simplicity 2222 and New Look 6843

The past couple of weeks I have neglected this space a little. Not sure why, I suppose settling into my new job and generally laziness in many areas of my life. But spring has sprung here in Edmonton and it's difficult not to feel some renewed energy when the sun streams through your living room windows.

I'm working on Simplicity 2222 at the moment. I'm making the "classic" version of this dress. Oh yoy, if I hadn't been thinking this dress would have been 8 inches too short. Warning to all who are over 25 that make this pattern, it is short. I hope when I have the dress finished I don't wish I hadn't added even more than the 6 inches.

I was really impressed with machine's ability to handle the buttonholes. It did a lovely job!

 And I think I'm finally getting the hang of topstitching ... that took awhile!
 This is my other finished product from this week. It's a New Look pattern that I've had for several years. Super easy, and you could easily make ten of these. I like the super thin waistband and made in this super soft knit (yeah, that's right, three supers in a row) that I've had for over ten years I think I'll have trouble convincing myself to wear something other than this skirt to work.
