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.
