My Not-For-Christmas Dress aka The Easter Dress
I started this dress in late October or early November when I was flush with enthusiasm after finishing my very first dress. I set myself the (I thought) reasonable goal of finishing it for Christmas. I work well with a deadline in mind and since it was red fabric this seemed like a good goal to shoot for. But, then I ended up deciding to fly out to Seattle to visit my sister for a week, I got a really bad stomach flu promptly upon my return, my step-father passed away, and you know, the dress plans went by the wayside. And then without a clear deadline any longer in mind the nearly completed dress just languished in my to-be-completed pile needing only to have the zipper inserted and the bottom hemmed.
So, I took advantage of my Easter Monday off by finally taking those last steps and finishing the dress off. It took hardly no time at all, really.
