I have been remiss in keeping up my posting this weekend. I apologize, but this flu has my sleeping habits thrown off, so nothing ever seems to get done (I usually sleep late, since I don’t work in the mornings, but I’ve been up every day at 6:30!) I’m not completely better, which seems crazy, but I am feeling a lot better than I was, and I’m back to work. Tonight I’m planning on staying in and working on a new project. Remember the Pizza Sempione dress that I wanted to copy, because I had really similar fabric? I’m going to try using Butterick 5415, without contrast bands.
It’s a simple dress, but I cannot yet tell how it’s going to work out. I’m not planning to line it (a lining pattern isn’t included anyway) because it’s loose enough to work with a slip.
I have three days worth of outfits for you too – none from the weekend, because I again managed to not leave the house at all, and mostly I slept in a desperate attempt to not be sick anymore.
Dress: Vogue 8667 , blogged here
Belt: The Kwik Sew dress I finished 2 weeks ago
I went out to dinner in this outfit -we went to a great hole-in-the wall Italian American restaurant. I could live on pasta, seriously. That was pretty much my only going out for the whole weekend!

Look, I know this is a bad outfit. I honestly think you can judge how well I feel by how many ponytails I’m wearing, and how many unnecessary layers of clothing I have on. I taught 5 hours of lessons, and ordered in pizza.

Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Anne Klein
Today I am feeling a little better, can you tell? No ponytail. I had to go to the sheet music store, Joann (for the pattern above) and I stopped off at Forever 21 – I love the belt I’m wearing, but it’s showing some abuse – I picked up a spare! I also discovered something awesome:
Argyle tights! I love sweater tights, and I had been looking for some. I can’t wait for cold weather so I can wear them (it’s currently about 90 degrees!)
