But really, time is sometimes the one thing I have the least of. As far as this dress goes though, it has plenty of it; even if all of the clocks have no hands whatsoever to even indicated what time it would be. I still like it just fine. Don’t ask me what time it is when I am wearing it, because I will never know if I leave it up to my dress.
A little bit of time is something that I did have last weekend. I cut this one out on Saturday night and sewed it up pretty quickly Sunday evening. The only thing I had left to do was attach the hem band and insert the zipper and I did those Monday after school got done, before I headed to the gym.
It was very easy to pick this contrasting fabric. I never had it in mind to make something with the two together until I washed the material. When I folded them and stacked them on top of each other, it was an instant match. I very much like how the contrast came out, and I have plenty of the band fabric left to make myself a different dress. (I already have one in mind.)
I have stepped away from my usual geometric printed material the last couple of makes, and I quite like what I am coming across. Balloons and clocks have made a couple of nice additions to my dress collection. And this color combination just happens to be one of my favorites. I even have my eye on a few more non-geometric, patterned pieces of fabric. Now, to just find a little more time to make something else…

I’d love to hear what you think. And since I have already made this dress many times before, I left out any details about the actual making of it. If you are interested to see any of the others, click on the Sew Serendipity tag below for a list of the archives.

I love the things you are making. You obviously get your sewing talent from both sides since your mother and Grandma Gayle are and were really talented sewers. I never had the knack that they and you do. Amanda does too. Awesome work.
