Been A Long Time Since I Rock n' Rolled

I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post! And I am ashamed to say I don't have much to sew show for it.

I finished NL 6895.  It turned out okay, wearable under a cardigan or jacket.  The charmeuse was a little bit of a challenge to work with but not as bad as the ITY jersey knits!  Not sure I would make it again though.

Then I moved on to B4957:
I've seen this made by several people and it looked so cute.  I just used a green cotton print from my stash and while the dress fit nicely it just looked kind of frumpy and blah.  So I didn't bother sewing in the zipper and put it aside.

Next up was M5591:
This is another pattern that has been very popular.   Here's my version:

I'm just not feeling the love here.  Maybe it would look better if I had a head but the frown on my face wasn't very picturesque.   I really like the black and white print but it looks so busy here.  I'm also not sure this style is very flattering to me, it really accentuates my short waist and thick middle.  I tried it with the top out but...uh, uh, no good.   I'm a little disappointed and not sure I will feel comfortable wearing it.

I don't have any new projects planned right now.  I am tired of summer clothes but it has been so hot here I just can not think of  fall/winter wear yet.  I did pick up a nice poly suiting for pants at JoAnn's a few weeks ago so I might try to tweak my pants pattern a little more and have another go at that.  I also have a few pairs I made earlier in the year that need some readjusting.We'll see.
