Since Seattle prolly has like ten good sunny day (if we’re lucky) I have had a hankering to make fall clothes. This dress was started before I was going to Burning Man and I finished it today. It is great with boots or sandals, worn by it’s self or with a sweater. That why its transitional. It is a brown silk charmeuse with a sun flower-esque print. Ahhhh, silk charmeuse- feel like your are wearing silk pajamas all day long. The dress is a model garment for the shop so I won’t be able to wear it for a month while it is on display… but I got all fabric and notions for free. A free silk dress is a definate perk of the job for an addict like me.
This pattern, Vogue 8469, is a great pattern, I really like how easy it went together. The only unfortunate thing is that I don’t quite have enough boobs to fit perfectly into the size 10. I fit exact everywhere else. I have to wear most illusionary bra to make it look right. I think that when I get it back from display I will try to steam the butt-u-ty out of it and see if I cannot shrink it a bit.
Oh Yeah, we bough a Westifalia Vanagon… three days before our trip. He is a real champion, and his name is Kurt Vanagon. Here is a man and his bus:
