Plus, I’ll be seeing a roommate from my first semester, Melissa, and two other good friends I had from there, Laura and Amy. And also, two other people I haven’t seen in.. at least three years, Ann and Ben. It should be a good time. My trip out there is shaping up to be a very busy one.
I usually make a dress for every wedding I go to so it was about time to do that. I’ve made two dresses from this pattern so far but both of them had something that was off so I tried to fix the problems in this one (like the fit across the back), but it didn’t quite work out like I wanted. (I elasticized the back as you can kind of see in the picture below. It actually needs to be tighter.) Though now, I know better for next time. I really like the fabric and want to use the leftovers for a quilt when quilting season rolls around. I have fabric I bought over the last few months for three more dresses so maybe I’ll continue in this groove and whip out a couple more (this one only took me about three hours).
The aforementioned wedding is my old roommate Noelle’s. I have not seen her for almost four years, since our other roommate Jill’s wedding (which, by the way, I sewed through my finger when making the dress for it) but we’ve kept in touch and she kindly invited me to her big day. I found out yesterday that two more of our roommates from that semester will be there, Jessica (with her new baby) and Andee. Having seen Jill earlier in the week, I will be seeing four out of the five girls I lived with that semester.
