As I finished this dress, it seemed like a long time since I had sewn something else. My short-term memory is really shot lately (I couldn’t remember what I did Saturday night when someone asked me yesterday) so the last sewing project before the quilt was a blur, but it turns out I was right: This is the first dress since the beginning of September.

Here’s a more detailed shot of the pattern, which I made in December, as well. This time I remembered to lengthen the sleeves and added a belt. The gingham makes it feel very French New-Wave to me…that, or The Womenfolk‘s album cover from 1964*

*I didn’t even know this group existed until two weeks ago, when I was going through my dad’s old (mint) vinyl looking for some new music.
