I can remember seeing this pattern a long time ago, when I had first started to seriously have a go at making my own clothes. The Butterick 6217 pattern has been sitting in my closet for around 4 years! I know I bought it when there was a sale on the McCall’s website. I seem to remember that they do a really good sale every now and again. I don’t think that I paid more than $4 for the pattern. I always thought that this was a beautiful pattern but it was way above my sewing level.
This week has been warm! Like very warm! Despite the heat, I managed to get a few things done…thank goodness the air conditioning for keeping the apartment cool. 🙂
1. After deciding where I wanted most of our pictures, they had been leaning against the walls for a while – it was a job that Adam was putting off! I decided to hang them myself and I think I did a pretty good job. These are the ones on one wall in the living room.
