I have had this Very Easy Vogue pattern floating around my life for years. It is a pretty simple pattern (as dresses go) but I couldn’t work up the courage to make it up. Finally I decided to make a dress w/some blue cotton I had and made a trip to Jo Ann’s for a zipper. Well. M went too and found this wonderful brown checked tweed with a gold tread running through it. When we were in the store I thought it was stoopid that I had to buy 15 plastic hook & eye sets for $3. So I got this gold filigree, one for $3. Oh, logic. At least now I don’t have 14 extra hook & eye sets. This dress is going to be so warm to wear this fall & winter! Hopefully I will take some good outfit pictures to share too!
