Make a Decision: Check.

While I was not able to cross off everything from my To-Do list this weekend, I did make a decision about the dress.  I found this fabric on sale sorry for the photo quality; I used my iPhone..., and the pattern will be on sale later in the week (for $1.99!) so I figured it is at least worth trying.  If I do not like the dress the originals will hopefully be on sale by the time I am finished.  If I do like the dress, I will have spent less than $20 and the dress will have pockets!

I settled on the Butterick 5455 pattern, partially because of the sale price, but also because I like that the middle band is slightly smaller than in the Vogue pattern I was looking at.

By the way, thanks to my younger sister for helping me with fabric selection and thanks to Amanda for asking me about it today!
