What have I been up to lately? I've been busy packing for my trip, I'm leaving today for Marrakesh (Morocco) then Ibiza and Barcelona (Spain) after that. Perfect timing, too, because Seattle has decided it wants to be 65F and rainy this week.
I've also been sewing. The bad news is that I did not finish the Burdastyle Alison swimsuit... It's close, but I couldn't get the bra cups right. I'll work on that again when I get back, we have a family trip to Hawaii coming up so I have incentive to finish it soon.
The good news is that I cranked out a dress, BWOF 6-2008-120. I lengthened it so it's a maxi dress. I'll post a review later, but in the meantime, if you're interested in making this pattern, let me strongly suggest that you make a muslin of at least the bodice, mine required some fiddling to get a good fit.
I think I'll try my hand at mobile blogging during this trip, so maybe I can post a picture of the dress in some exotic location...
