Not Much...

..Gluing and sticking going on but there's been a bit of sewing...
Being a little on the large size and a certain age stylish summer cotton tops are hard to come by..so out came the sewing machine

The Alder shirt dress has everything I wanted.. fitted around the bust but lots of room around the middle for a cool comfortable fit.

I shortened it to fingertip length to wear over cropped jeans.

I just love the yellow elephant fabric.... from Regency Rags, it's a lovely soft cotton lawn.

The pattern needed the usual adjustments.. a FBA...a dart out of the neckline and an added smidge on the side seams... It worked out so well I made another, you can see the fabric in the first picture. 
It seems the mojo just might be making a comeback... fingers crossed.
