Back to School!
Tuesday morning found us bleary eyed, but reporting for duty! Little Miss started Middle School this year, and Little Man started 3rd grade. Seems like yesterday that they were so much smaller...
Anyhow, that striped dress I'm wearing was whipped up last week, along with another of the same exact pattern, New Look 6261, but in a different fabric and neckline (view D).
This summer I found that making two at a time is so much faster, and since I know how much I like the sheath style and the two fabric are so different, no one would ever think anything of it.
Apparently I have some kind stripe addiction going on lately? This fabric (2 yards) came from Gorgeous Fabrics a few years ago. It has some texture, like a seersucker, and some stretch (between the black stripes). I lined it with some plain white poly, and the pattern was a breeze. The fit was very good straight out of the envelope, and I was happy with the compliments that I received! (Sorry, no back view. Too crazy of a morning!)
The other version in the different fabric? I haven't worn it yet, so I'll post a pic next week. Today is "school spirit Friday", so I'm sporting the ever fashionable t-shirt and ponytail... Gotta run, school bell is ringing!!!
