Spring is the perfect time for penguins, isn’t it?  Well, for me, anytime is the perfect time for penguins!  They are my favorite animal after all.  I bought this lovely Cotton and Steel fabric several months back in one of my fabric splurge purchases.  My original intention was to make a ‘winter dress’ out of it, but winter has come and pretty much gone and I hadn’t done anything with it.  Fast forward to the last few days of February, first weekend in March, and I thought to myself, I really should cut in to it before winter really is over.  So I did.  And the weekend I wore it was a mixture of rain, warmer temps, and then sun.

I took advantage of said sun to get a few better pictures than the ones I took on the front porch in the middle of the rain storm.  I think they came out alright.  At least the sun was shining.

My dress is nothing new.  I made another Butterick 6453.  It would be my forth one, so it’s probably time to move on to something else.  I can’t help making this one over and over though because it’s such an easy make and has the silhouette that I love the most.  Plus, it’s just so sweater friendly for transitional times of the year.

I may have mentioned my desire to have another go at a dress a month project again this year.  Well, so you know, I’ve not slacked on making them, I just haven’t blogged about them yet.  This one is February’s dress, and I will get the one I made for January up next week.  I am also ahead of the game for this month and last Thursday made the one for March – it just needs to be hemmed.  My sewing self is so happy!  Believe it or not, the other two are both from patterns I’ve never made before.

And that is all I have to say about the Spring Penguin dress.
