I was so excited to get this in the mail today:

I won Handmade Jane’s giveaway & landed this lovely pattern – thanks Jane!! 🙂

I’ve got Hazel & a couple other summer pieces to do first but I’ve already got fabric earmarked for this as my first fall make:

Looking forward to a special trip downtown with my mum to shop for the perfect buttons for it as well!! 🙂

But for now I’m getting close to wrapping up the Licorice dress from the Sew Colette party – yeah, late… I know!! lol But check out my awesome sleeves:

This is my first “for-real” time doing set-in sleeves; actually knowing what I was doing, and I’m really pleased with the results! I had also made some alterations to the sleeve (which I’ll detail when the dress is finished) and I’m super happy with them – yay!!

Hopefully gonna try & finish this baby tomorrow! 🙂
