New Dress & Warmer Weather

I made myself a new dress.  I used a pattern that I've used before.  Its just a great pattern and makes for a comfy dress that I can totally move around it...PLUS its a very 1940s style.

I put my phone on a timer to take pics of myself, so I apologize for the somewhat blank look.  It took me about a dozen times to get this pic.  LOL   I also didn't realize that my bra would show through, so that got switched too!
Fabric

The fabric is a nice spring print with a peach background and grey, white, and mustard flowers.  The only thing that I don't like about how this dress came out are the pockets.  The last dress I said no to pockets.  I'm not wild about them, but I had to give them a try.

As it turns out, its warming up and I'm trying to go out of my way to not be so depressed - which occasionally happens when I get really bored.  Here's what I have planned.

  1. Sewing Projects.  I'm getting them all finished.
  2. I started a local rockabilly facebook group so we can all start to network a little.  It's slow, but I think its working.  In fact, I have a luncheon at a car hop in 15 minutes.
  3. I'm going to take a swing class starting in March - as well as continue with crossfit and taekwondo.
  4. Zombie Prom is coming up soon and I'm thinking about going for the first time.  I guess it depends on if I can get some others to go with me.  I don't like going to social things by myself.  Zombie Prom is an annual thing that the roller derby team hosts.
  5. I plan on getting out and doing more social events because it's warming up.  Today it's supposed to get up to 35F!  Summer is a-comin'!
