Those dresses are beautiful and practical, Kathryn! I love all of them.

Ann, I would love to say the Great Purge is done but I'm fighting mightily against the tide.  The "Great Cleanup" is coming, though.  We have the table outside of the shop half filled with stuff to go to Hazardous Waste and we shall soon go through the shop and lean-to to root out more.  A step in the right direction, albeit a small one.

Congratulations on your success.  I want a Roomba but the dog would think it a toy and it would scare the new cat.  I settle for asking DS to haul out the vacuum and defur/lint the surroundings.
Thank you RobbieK for the compliment on my jeans and also if anyone voted it was a tie for first place and I was one of them  ;D

Love the Lola dresses Kathryn and those shoes you purchased for your daughter to go with the red dress are perfect.  I've often wondered about this pattern whether I would wear it or not, so where do you wear yours?

I love the fact that I can customize the pattern to account for my long lines and wide shoulders. I just got patterns for all the kinds of clothes I want to take on my trip this summer. Lots of comfy knit tops and pants. I added in a couple dresses that are my style too. I'm not usually a dress person but they had two that really caught my eye and I think will look good on me.
You know how some folks say "less is more"? Well, for me and my DD, more is more. I made a grey sweatshirt dress for myself a year ago and have now followed it up with 3 (!) more sweatshirt dresses. The navy one is for me and the grey and red ones shown here are for my DD.

The pattern used is the Lola Dress by Victory Patterns

Thanks to both pf you.  I think I could have eventually come close to duplicating this pattern, but it was so much easier to start with a finished pattern and adapt to my TNT.
For anyone interested, a thrift store in Fort Collins CO has a CL listing for this mangle in what appears to be very nice condition, $65.  I have no connection with the listing but this Iron Rite looks so nice thought somebody in this neck of the woods might be interested.

I am so hooked! :) I found them a few months ago and now completely in love. I have a hard to fit body, so I started sewing because I wanted to have clothing that fits. Their patterns fit better straight from my printer than after numerous refitting of any of the big 4. Some minor alteration and that's it. Also decent sewing instructions and all the extras that they provide. I just bought 20 patterns and plan to make this one first

Oh Laurie. What a day and a half.  Reading your post took me by surprise. Smoking is banned in most public places around here... A very good thing. Some cities even ban smoking in public parks.
