Recovering and behind in school work

There has been some sewing going on but not much really. I had some outpatient surgery on 7/23 and all is well, recovering nicely but that among-st other things has placed me a little behind in my school work.  This week will be catch up as I only have 4 weeks remaining.  No stress, Right?

I did however make a dress on this morning to wear to church. McCall's 7121 made in a midi version with fabric purchased from Fine Fabrics in Atlanta last year.  I lined the bodice of the dress with a black tricot fabric I had in my stash.  To say I like this dress in an understatement. It wears really well and was extremely comfortable.

I matched the bodice stripes on purpose, did not have enough of the fabric to match the skirt but I still love it just the same.  I may make a couple more simple knit dresses before the summer ends but I am beginning to look towards the fall which is my absolute favorite time of the year.

I keep trying to post at least once or twice a month but have not been able to do so, hopefully I can add this to my list of things to do on a monthly basis. I've really got to get myself into a workable routine.

As always, Happy Sewing!


  1. Glad you are feeling better... get even better soon. Pretty dress. Isn't that pattern like so easy and can be made using various prints.

    1. Hey Sheila, thanks for the encouragement. I do love 7121 and it is so easy to make. It also encourages you to be creative. Have enjoyed seeing the looks you have made from it as well. Sometimes simple is all that is needed. That is how I would describe 7121. Take care
