Now that I’ve got a pretty sizable pattern collection with many basics, I’m trying to limit new acquisitions to patterns that have unusual style elements. Advance 8047 has a very distinct neckline that I just fell in love with. It was a pretty straight forward grade and sew. My only complaint about this dress, and seems to be the norm for vintage patterns, is that the pockets are quite small. I know I said in my last post that this fabric was to be a different dress, but as soon as this one arrived, I knew it had to be in this fabric. Please excuse the flat hair and no make-up. I’ve been pretty sick since Boxing Day..

parting shot: my new shoes that match the purple exactly!
