Been busy sewing dresses, jackets and fleece blankets.

Actually, the fleece blankets I can't take credit for. These fleece tie blankets are ones that my daughter made last weekend as gifts for a few of her friends. She was especially excited about finding the Sponge Bob fleece fabric as her friend's two-year old son is crazy about that cartoon character.
Me? I've been busy finishing up the Vintage Vogue jacket that I began November 5. I just need to add the frog closings and take a photo. It's a great jacket and has been a fun project to work on.

I've also been working on the Vogue 8315 faux wrap dress. Unfortunately, I'm having problems with the fit so I put it aside to think on it for a bit. The dress looks awesome when Gigi (my dress dummy) wears it, but not so great when I put it on. The vee is way too deep and the sleeves are tight when I reach forward. I'm not 100 percent sure what I need to do to fix it, but obviously I need to do some tweaking in the upper bodice. The dress itself is adorable so I hope that I can salvage it.

Oh, and the 50's style apron (Butterick 4945) is completed. I'm taking Zazzu's advice and will give it to my sister as a hostess gift. Like Zazzu said, "Anyone who volunteers to host TWO holiday dinners w/in a month is practically a living saint!" The full review of the pattern can be read on Patternreview. Pin It

    I saw your apron review. You and EricaB are making it too hard to resist this cute pattern. The apron is adorable. I never thought I would say that about an apron. Your sister will love it!
