Here's the Dottie Angel dress! As you can see if you place the tucks and ties right under the bustline, it could look a little less boxy. Boxy works for me because I'm chubby in the torso. Also, it isn't meant to be so long, but I'm short. So, you can mess about with the pattern because it is very basic, very straight forward. Bill said it looks like an Indian dress (salwar kameez) for sure. I love Indian clothes, so it works! I have a scarf on that covers the scoop neckline (sorry!) and I'm also wearing a long sleeved linen blouse because it's so cold, but I will wear the dress to the pool this summer, covering up my swimsuit (a necessity).
We had such a nice time over the weekend. We enjoyed lots of cuddles on the sofa and happy family meals (burritos and spaghetti). We also had our fair share of donuts, cookies, ice cream, candy, soda, and the like. Miss Bug woke me up at 3am on Sunday morning with a stomach ache and proceeded to empty said stomach within an hour. They went home early Sunday morning and then I had a touch of intestinal distress (along with a bad nose cold) so I have been resting the last two days. We told stories at night (they are SUCH attentive listeners when I tell them the memories from my childhood. They think the stories are funny!) I like sitting on the sofa with them while they watch movies. I like serving them huge bowls of popcorn and getting them drinks. I'm glad I like waiting on them. I really do like it.
Finally, I wondered if the lovely tulips were causing my nose cold so as they were losing their petals, I took them out to the trash. Doesn't Waterlogue make photos look cool?
Here's our Brad. April snapped this photo at a coffee shop. It's SO Brad! He is quite the reader, coffee drinker, and tea expert!
I have hemmed a pair of jeans (thanks to Bernie the Bernette) and I really do love the way she purrs and hums without sounding so clunky like my poor old Singer.
I'm still playing around with my Rule of Life and feeling quite good about my journey of reading and writing as I strive to complete it. I'll share. I will.
Take care, good readers. I hope a deep sense of contentment is accessible to you today.
Oh! I found a great way to hem on Pinterest. Look closely and you can see how you shorten, still retaining the original hem. Do you like my bunny slippers? I decided to wear them today because I don't intend to roar around the house stirring up dust and they aren't good for traction! Ha ha ha! Bye-bye!
