Sure, maybe some people call them coveralls. I think Ginny may be the only one to understand that this is what you wear to get your super science on! They were new, with tags, for $8 and couldn't fit better. They even have the elastic back waistband! I fear that if someone didn't stop me, I might try to wear these to the grocery store! i'll try not to do that though. I also got 4 great skirts, and a giant bag of fabric ($3.99!) with all kinds of goodies - including some fantastic polyester doubleknits. super! the mister got 3 button downs, two sports coats and a backup papercutter! everyone was a winner! Oh, and yes, those are swans on my shower doors. not really in love with them.

I cut this dress out months ago, which is always my least favorite part of the sewing process, but even after that, it sat around. I'll blame the holidays - but I don't know what it was! I have to travel for work at the end of the month, so that gave me motivation to finish this! I love it love it love it!
It fits great, and it's a style that I really couldn't wear before losing weight. I did the sleeveless version, not because I want to show off my flappy arms, but because I didn't have enough fabric for sleeves, and I figured I'd wear a cardigan over it anyway! I'll definitely be making this dress again. It's Simplicity 2403 - one of their Project Runway patterns, which means there are a lot of variations on a single theme. There's a pretty cute double breasted version which I may have to do! I also like the idea of doing the skirt in a different fabric than the bodice so give a separates look, but in one piece.
