Simplicity 2766 Superman dress Done
I haven't been very good about posting flowers from the Princeton Farmer's Market like I was last year. This bouquet was neat because it has basil in it! It smells delicious!!
My laptop has a virus, sigh. It's the first time I've ever had a virus on my computer and I really don't know how I got it. I have to figure out how to fix it. I'm writing this on my netbook, which has virus protection.
Ok, so this afternoon I finished my Superman dress, Simplicity 2766 view A. Last week I was in a quandary about what to do with the sleeves. Today I decided to leave them long, but taper them from a 16 at the bicep to a 10 at the wrist. The days are getting cooler and I was thinking if I keep the sleeves long I can wear it for a little while longer. It is just too cold to wear dresses in the winter here. I'm cold all the time to begin with!
Here, my left arm has the size 16 at the wrist; the right has the 10.
Here's another view of the right sleeve, so you can see how full it is even at the size 10. But this I can live with. I think it might even be cute!
Here it is without the belt (in the first picture of my posting last week, the sides hadn't been sewn yet and I was wearing it over another dress, making it look even larger)
and here it is with the belt
Although I graded to a 14 at the hip, I might have been able to get away with a 12?
I think it's a great little pattern that doesn't take too much time to make. Big thumbs up!!
