In the Queue Wednesday

Coming in a close second in the competition to be the oldest project in my queue, at approximately 10 months old, is this dress...

in this fabric...

Normally I would have picked view B, with the scooped neck. However, during my individual fashion consultation with Cynthia Guffey at this year's Original Sewing & Quilt Expo in Tampa, Florida, she strongly recommended that people with angular facial features select patterns with angular features around the face. So, I think I'll try view A instead.

Frankly, I'm not sure she would approve of the pink, flowery print on me, but I LOVE it, so let's go with: Baby steps, Cynthia, baby steps... ;)

I can't wait to have a new summery dress!

When am I going to make it? I don't know... But don't worry, I'll get to it eventually. It's in the queue... ;)

ooh, I love this dress! And the fabric is beautiful.

I've been dress shopping lately, and boy how I can't wait to start making my own to get what I want.

What a pretty dress! Your fabric is also so cute. I'm sure it'll be a great dress for the summer.

Only 10 months? I have stuff that's been sitting in queue for at least two years! Most of which is not cut out, fortunately, so I can always use the fabric for other ideas.

And pretty dress!

OMG!! I have items that have been in the queue about 5 years!! I love the dress and the fabric. I too have a somewhat angular face and U necklines and round are not very flattering on me. My best necklines are turtleneck and a high boatneck. (I have a very long neck also)
I can't wait to see the dress made up.

Gwen, thank you for stopping by my blog. It was fun to see your comment pop in just after I finished editing my post for typos and clarification. ;o)

Love your Blog!!! The photos of the sewing machines and FUN!

I have a dress form in my living room, with my machine that I got over 20 years ago when I graduated from high school.

Just started sewing again. So it was fun to find your blog. Do you love Amy Butler fabrics too??
