Been a few weeks, but here we are with more THROWBACK THURSDAY! Today is a pattern I love and have made twice (but haven’t blogged until now). I always think about making more, but then get distracted by another new pretty pattern.
Anywho, here it is: Simplicity 2369
This purty dress got lots of wear at weddings last year.
I FINISHED MY FIRST COAT!!!
Jacket. Coat. Outwear. What-have-you.
I bought this pattern FIVE mofoing years ago, and it finally has taken form… my very own Sewaholic Minoru.

That said, life has been a little busy, and I’ll use that as my excuse. We’re currently looking for a bigger home and readying our own house for sale. The real estate market here (and many places, per the many nationwide articles I’ve read) is pretty much insane at the moment: so little inventory, such high prices, very much a seller’s market. It’ll bode well when it comes time for us to sell our sweet little starter home, but this end is just a tad frustrating. We’ve been looking since late February and we are persisting because quickly selling our home is very attractive with a toddler around.
Speaking of a toddlers, I managed to make Cheeks some stuff for Easter. :D All three pieces are part of McCall’s 6873.
