I made myself a couple of wool dresses. I wanted a black dress with sleeves and found a lovely wool. When I cut it out, I found I actually had enough fabric for two. I have been wanting some sheath dresses again so that is what I am going to make with the extra.
I did the horrible thing of going to the fabric store to buy zippers and found more fabric. I did buy more black wool. Two different bits which will probably make four dresses. For some odd reason I was really drawn to the laces and I do not know why. I really do not wear lace. Spilling tea on a lace dress? Not good. It does not mean I cannot admire.
I find I can make five nine squares for each dress with sleeves I make. Is that not a funny statistic? I also have taken to putting tags in everything. I am the crazy lady who goes camping with a backpack full of dresses. When you are getting dressed in the dark, a tag makes a huge difference!
Just simple A-line dresses but I get such compliments on them. They are so comfortable and easy.
The wools I picked up are so soft and have some weight. If the weather stays cool and the office stays as cold as it has been, I will like these very much all winter. I may have store them for summer. May not if I wear them only at the office. I so rarely do that.
Off adventuring again this weekend. Mountains and fiber. Such a good combination. I may or may not be here tomorrow.
