I have a ridiculous tendency to over-schedule myself because I have this crazy idea that I shouldn’t miss out on any fun! As a result, I frequently pack too many activities and commitments in to the weekends and end up feeling worn out instead of rested on Sunday night.
But, last weekend we had a pretty light schedule during the day and it was wonderful! In addition to catching up with a few friends over brunch and a great workout, I was able to get started on my next project – Vogue V8409.
I first came across this pattern when I saw Gertie’s version and I thought View A would make a great work wardrobe staple that I can wear in several seasons (although not during the worst of the Washington, DC summer)!
I am using a purple double knit and I’m pretty excited about it so far!
This past weekend I cut out all the pieces for the dress and fused the interfacing on the appropriate pieces.
Unfortunately, I forgot to buy thread and a zipper when I bought this fabric (whoops!) so I couldn’t make any more progress than that. But cutting always seems like the harder/more boring part to me so it’s nice to have that done!
We have our big conference at work starting this weekend and going in to next week, so I’ll be picking this up again after that!
Hope you are having a great week!
