Safari Dress Update

Yes, I'm still working on this dang Safari Dress. It feels like it's creeping along at a snail's pace, but honestly, I've been pretty busy with other things like work and family and I haven't had as much time to work on it as I'd like. Don't you just hate it when real life intrudes on your sewing time?

This is the "locker loop" I added to the center back yoke seam. The button is just lying on top right now- I'll sew it down underneath and the loop will button over it. Just a little something to add interest to the back of the dress.

I don't really have a whole lot left to do. I need to hem the sleeves and the bottom of the dress, apply the upper patch pockets and then of course, the buttons and button holes down the front. These are the details that can take a lot of time, though.

I'm already thinking about my next project- something easy and quick. I'm feeling the need for some instant sewing gratification!
