1950's Walkaway Dress

So, I started this pattern last summer...that's right, last summer.  And I just now finished it a few days ago.  What did it need done to it, you might ask.  Well, it needed the two sets of snaps sewed on and the button sewed on.  Yep, that's it.  Can we say lazy...or more likely...can we say a severe hate of hand sewing.  I've said it before and I'll say it again.  I hate hand sewing with a passion.  I'm not good at it, and it just wastes so much time.  That's not to say I don't do it on almost everything I make, but things do tend to pile up when you wait a few days-weeks to finish the hand sewing on things.
I think it is super cute, easy pattern.  It is very flattering almost every figure a girl could have.  However, I think it is definitely geared towards people who are a little bigger on top that I am.  When I sit, sometimes the top blouses out a little more than I like.
Well, I finally had motivation to finish the dress so I could wear it to our family dinner tonight.  We went to the Olive Garden with my entire dad's side of the family.  Thank God for the creation of reservations or we would probably still be waiting to eat:D  It was fabulous.  I'm always impressed by Olive Garden's quality for being a chain restaurant.  And I brought my new camera to take pictures of dinner, and what did I do.  I forgot to grab the SD card.  So, yeah...no pictures.  I was not happy.

Right after dinner, I had musical practice.  I still have not sung my song yet from the music we have.  I know the movie version, but there are slight variations that I am not used to, and I fear that if I don't get the version we are doing in my head I am going to be singing the wrong thing, lol.  After practice, I came right home and had my mother take pictures of me and my puppy.  I think I may love my dog way too much.  She still needs some camera lessons apparently, as if you couldn't tell from all the blurry wonder.  Jeez Louise.  Enjoy
