A very happy New Year to one and all! I have been AWOL from blogland for far too long. If you've kept me on your blogroll long enough to still be reading this, you have my sincere thanks. I've missed you guys. Though I haven't been blogging much I've been sewing up a storm. Over the next few weeks I hope to get myself organized enough to update this space with all of my (sometimes successful) efforts. In the meantime, this grainy iphone photo is my current, half-finished project.
I had originally planned a knee-length cocktail dress, but since I'm wearing this to a wedding that is "black tie optional," I think I might keep it long. The wedding is in January so there will definitely be sleeves.
The pattern is Simplicity 2497, which I've made and blogged about before here.
In unrelated news, I just joined Twitter! I'm still figuring out how the whole thing works, but hey, if you want to follow me (I've very witty) you can find me at @jillsinatra. Assuming I've installed the gadget correctly, you can see my feed and follow my by clicking over on the right hand side of this page!.
