I had enough vintage fabric to make a dress AND something to lounge around the house in (although I’m thinking pants will get more use than a robe), so over the weekend I made the dress:

Now I’ll get my matching shoes and handbag and go to a pool party, where I will drink a Tom Collins…Wait, no I won’t. The dress just makes me feel like I could.

(And because I don’t want to keep you in suspense about the sweater, I finished it and did not run out of yarn. I left it at work, though, so no picture. Just imagine something beige and a little lumpy-looking.)
