New Dress

I was inspired to sew a dress as a practice dress for my MOB outfit.
After a search, I found a pattern I liked which was a retro Butterick, from the year of my birth, 1952.

I found some great material with Chinese characters on it. I see the characters for 'person' and 'heart' and 'way' but I haven't deciphered them all yet.

And here is the final product; the first dress I have sewed in many a year!

Nice! Do you want to sew me a navy blue bridesmaid dress like that? I think your MOB dress needs a little sparkle. Maybe a red sparkly jacket to accessorize?

This is not a MOB dress, but I think I will wear it to Annie's wedding. Looking for a little black hat with 1 or 2 feathers.
Yes, I can make you one or help.
