Oh, yes, View B is exactly what I was looking for. However not wanting to pay full price, I wanted patiently for someone to have a sale.
I also fell in love with the dress on Pinterest:
Doesn't it look like a nice comfy summery dress? I did have to search for the pattern number and finally found it S1652. I suspect that this will be a bit of trial and error on my part because it is an Amazing Fit pattern and I don't usually have great luck with them. Trial and error will come from the stash and then I will find a great looking fabric to wear. The pattern sale was found at Pattern Review.
Then, I saw this top from Sew Liberated:
I just had to have it. I think it will be a nice summery top also. It has two variations. I hope it works out.
I went to JoAnn's to pick up some lining fabric for the brown wool skirt that I have been wanting to make and I did find a wonderful sweater knit:
It is more of a fuchsia color than the purple that is showing but it will go with the gray wool skirt that I made last month. The only thing is I don't know what pattern will work with this type of fabric. I think it should be rather simple to let the fabric do the speaking but I have never sewn a sweater knit before. Maybe I will use a simple t-shirt pattern. Any suggestions?
Well, the sewing room has warmed up enough to sew. I'm hoping to get either a UFO completed or start the brown wool skirt. Maybe I'll get lucky and do both.
