I haven't really had too much time to get a lot of sewing done recently, but when I have had the chance a lot of it has been kiddie-focussed what with having 2 very cute nieces around and also lots of friends with babies. I find that making children's clothing a little more rewarding as well as kids either fit or they don't. No unsightly lumps or bumps where the pattern and your body don't quite match up (which seems to happen to me fairly often *sob sob*) and just oh-so-cute due to the general little-ness of the garments.
I have now however decided to take the plunge and get back to sewing something for myself. A pretty summer dress is on the cards, but now the dilemma is which pattern to use... I have told myself I am not allowed to purchase any more patterns if I have something suitable in my ever-growing pike of patterns, so I've narrowed the choice down to one of these:
Simplicity 2884 - I'd make the knee-length version (view B) with the tie at the neck as opposed to buttons
McCalls M5652 - Floor-length for this one, and unsure if I'd put a ruffle down the bottom of it
I'm pretty much 50/50 on the two of these, so maybe I need to re-examine my stash to see what fabrics I have to help with the decision...
