WIP Wednesday - Staple Dress Edition

I decided yesterday that I needed to make a Staple Dress.  We are going to a summer party for my husband's office this weekend and as usual I don't want to wear anything that I already own.

I haven't shirred the dress, added the facing to the arms, or hemmed it yet, but taping all of the pattern pieces together took me a lot longer than I had anticipated so this is as far as I got last night.  I can't decide if I'm going to love it or hate it or if it is something I will be able to wear to a casual work party.  We will see.
My postage stamp scrap quilt has been sitting on the back burner but it is ready to be finished up.  I just have to join the blocks.
Last week I pulled out these fabrics for a new quilt and I am excited to narrow these down and get started.  I am thinking of making a chevron quilt but I'm not sure.  

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  8. There must be something in the air - I cut out a staple dress last night as well. Just got the hem left to do now. It looks a lot better on me than on the hanger (at least I think so, anyway!!!!) The postage stamp blocks are lovely x

  13. Everything looks great. I was just planning on stopping by to say your staple dress came out really nicely. But then I saw your postage stamp blocks and they look lovely, too. And then I saw your pile and that looks like it will make a lovely quilt too!
