How E Got Her Groove Back

Undergarments are our friends.

There it is, my first dress out of the slump. Burda 7444. I still can't decide if I love it. Is it too hefty bag?

I really love the back. I omitted the center back zipper. It was completely unnecessary with this knit, a beautifully sheen jersey blend from Kashi at Metro.

This pattern was a breeze, and the end result is super-comfy. I'll be sporting this dress with combat boots and fingerless gloves all winter :)

It's good to be back.

I'm a little upset because I knew you were a hot mom. But, damn! Hefty? Feh. I looove the gray. Love.

If Hefty bags looked like that, we'd all be sewing with them. Damn, that looks good.

Love the dress! The neckline is interesting and flattering and the back view of the sleeves is great. I'd want to see it a couple inches above the knee, but that's just me.

Uh, this looks amazing and is so not at all hefty baggish. Silly billy. Gorgeous.
