Hi.

I like to make things.

      
    
 
FALL! FALL! FALL! 
 
That's what everyone is saying. Apparently fall is here in the northern hemisphere, at least according to the earth's position, and also Starbucks. 
 
But it's still kinda hot here. Enter this dress. This dress lets me feel all autumnal on the inside, but keeps me abiding by summer on the outside. 
 
 
    
 
The pattern is the  Papercut Patterns Clover dress , which is my new favorite one-evening-make. It comes together so fast, and with the small pieces and the 'V' shape on the front there are a lot of possibilities with color blocking and fun fabric choice. 
 
 
    
 
AND the dress version doesn't have a waist seam so it's the same amount of work as the shirt length. 
 
 
    
 
The fabric is a light and drapey number that I actually got for free when someone made a giant fabric donation at Sew LA. It's some kind of polyester that's has a little woven plaid on it. I snagged it, forgot about it, then found it when I was trying to figure out what to make this out of. Score! 
 
  
 
    
 
I'm definitely planning to do more of the shirt length and play around with some sheer / fancy fabrics. I would have already except that I have nary a shred of sheer or fancy in my stash. How sad, right? 
 
  
 
    
 
  
 
This belt buckle, by the way, is from ebay. If you'd like to lose an hour of your time and possibly some money, go search for "vintage brass belt buckle" on ebay, I dare ya. 
 
  
 
    
 
  
 
So now it's off to the pumpkin patch, or the cider mill, or the corn maze, or something. Happy fall!
