In the Works

     About a week and a half from now is the Hartfield Assembly, a local Jane Austen-style ball. Think Pride and Prejudice dancing, without Mr. Collins to make things awkward. :o)
     My co-worker at the coffee shop is hosting it with her sister. She can't contain her excitement, which is wonderful because her excitement is extremely contagious. I can't contain mine either.


     I'm making two dresses: one for me (I make a new one every ball; I just love to sew!) and one for my sister (she's 12 and this'll be her first ball). This fabric^ is from her dress. I just have a few things to finish up and it'll be done. I am super excited! The dress is turning out so well and I can't wait to see my little sister all dressed up in it!
     I'm using Sense and Sensibility's Recency gown pattern (the Simplicity version). I've made four dresses from it so far, so I know and love this pattern well. Once you get the hang of it, it is super easy and quick to assemble. Which is nice, because otherwise I'd die from the stress of making two dresses in less than two weeks. As I stand now, however, it's all easy-peasy, which leaves more room for fun!!! :)

Cheers!
