Sneak Peak

Here's a sneak peak at Simplicity 2996:

It's not quite done yet. It still needs a hem- as soon as I decide how long I want it to be- and it needs buttons and buttonholes. I want to use faux mother of pearl buttons like these that I've already sewn to the sleeve tabs:

Unfortunately I only had two in my stash and it's an hour drive to the nearest fabric store to buy more. I hope to get more this weekend and get this dress finished. Then I'll post a review and share the low-down on this pattern. But let me just say this much- I'm pretty pleased with it.
And while I'm posting, I'd like to say thanks to all the folks who left kind comments about my last project, the Safari Dress. I really appreciate them. I wanted to reply to them individually, but I've had some family activities going on in the last couple of weeks that have seriously curtailed my computer time here at home. Just know that I really appreciate that y'all took the time to stop by and leave a comment.
And now, I'm off to work on my next project, Simplicity 3744 Redux.

I'm so glad I met you! You are an amazing sewing woman, I'm not worthy! I think it's really cool how you and I have a few things in common, mainly the USMA thing which is VERY significant. I want to stay in touch with you. I can totally relate about the fabric thing, it's ridiculous! Hang in there with the other stuff. I'm going to make a camo-bandana and wear it to work out...just representin'
