|This may well be my new favourite outfit for spring!!|
Well it kind of fell by the wayside. It wasn't my fault entirely. It was that I was let loose with some money in my pocket and a fabric store in my sights. I was still on the straight and narrow of the "Operation New Dress (revisited)" plan at the fabric store for the first bit of my peruse around. But then I spied a sweet red floral print. Better yet, the red floral print also had white polka dots. And there went the plan. Because that seemingly sweet innocent floral/polka dot print was actually screaming quite loudly that it absolutely NEEDED to become a Sew Over It Susie.

(And yes. That is a can of tuna and a can of black olives doing double duty as pattern weights)
Like my first Susie, I really adore this one! I had cut it out earlier in the week and then unfortunately never got a chance to start sewing right away. It ended up that I actually sewed it up after the little boys went to bed on Thursday evening. (And Baby Boy didn't go to sleep until about 9:45, darn his little hide!). Now that I've got the fit down from doing the work prior to my first Susie, it was so quick to put together. For reference, I was hanging my new blouse in the closet and climbing into bed by 11:30pm. So not bad for sewing time!

So now that I've got Susie sewing out of my system I will return to my previously scheduled new dress sewing... Honestly. I will. Really...
