I bought the Sis Boom Jamie Dress pattern the other day, and sewed up a new dress for myself.  I really like this pattern!  It was so easy to sew, and the directions are great!  Lots of pictures to help out.  This is a good pattern even for those who are new to sewing.  The fabric from this dress is actually from a sheet from my late grandmother's stash.  I found it perfect for what I wanted. 

 We have our annual Ragbrai that goes on in our state.  The town's theme was Christmas in July, so this picture is of it "snowing" around me. 
Here is a better picture of the dress.  It's just at knee length, maybe just below the knee.  As you can tell, this is a big event!

New Dress!

I was a tester for this wonderful halter top dress.  My daughter has so much fun twirling in it, and I love watching her twirl in it.  :)  The pattern is easy to sew up, and has a wonderful finish.  Sizes go from 2-8 and you can find the pattern here.
