Audrey Dress

I promised an update on the Audrey Dress I am sewing from This Book.  It's not one that I can whip up in an afternoon, like all my T-Shirt Makeovers.  This one will take some time and we are smack in the middle of painting a couple of rooms and getting new furniture, so this project has hit the pause button.  Here's a little peak though.

The first snip into the fabric is always a bit scary for me.  What if I mess up?  ;-)  Once the pattern is all pinned in place, I pause, gulp, then begin.

What do you think of my fabric choice?  It's a nice medium weight cotton in a small floral print.  It was on the sale table at Hancock's.  I hope to wear this little dress nine months of the year.  By itself in Summer and with shrugs or cardigans in Spring and Fall.

In my very first adventure with princess seams, I may be using too many pins, but really need help with that curve.  So far, no puckers!  Woo hoo! 
The bodice is done, minus the straps.  I'll be glad when life settles down and I can get back to it!
When do you hit the pause button on your projects?  Please tell me I am not the only on PAUSE!  LOL!

  1. I'm always pausing when I see another shiny penny! Sometimes I pick it back up and finish and sometimes not. Looks good so far! Good luck with it.

  2. What pretty fabric for a spring dress! Looks to me like you know exactly what you're doing! Looking forward to the finish. In the meantime...I'm way behind on my emails and trying to catch up!

  3. I'm always hitting the pause button, it's one of those things I'm trying to conquer this year.

  4. Hitting the pause button is dangerous for me...sometimes I don't get back to a project for Your fabric looks great.

  5. I hit pause all the time! Mostly because I think of another project and then can't wait to get started. It's a pretty terrible habit actually ;) Love the fabric choice! Thank you for sharing at Merry Monday!

  6. For me, when I hit the pause button on projects it's usually cause things aren't going well with it and I don't always hit unpause. I understand having so much going on that you'd have to though. I can wait to see this finished.
