I've Been Sew Busy.

That's it.  That's what's keeping me busy.  This is the Women's Panel Dress from Common Sense Patterns. So far, I've made two dresses with this pattern and am working on a third.  I think it has a flattering fit.  I have to admit, there a few places where I have to fudge it a bit because the pattern pieces don't seem to fit together quite right where the front sides attach at the arms.  It does work out fine though.  Sometime soon, I'll post some photos.

Well, it's back to my sewing machine!

By the way, if this sounds like a review, it's not.  I'm just sewing away.  A friend (Hi Laura!)  gave me this pattern for my birthday and some fabric, too.  I'm just stitching through my stash!

Happy at Home

May I suggest?


  1. Cute dress. Can't wait to share the pattern with my daughter! Would love to see some of your finished projects!

  2. I like that pattern! It looks like it would be very flattering! Is it an empire waist? -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  3. Yes, Marci, it is an empire waist. I add a little extra fabric to the front panel to give me a little more positive ease in movement. We won't discuss just why I need that positive ease. ~smile~

    Blessings to you!
