My hope is that the with the dress being fitted through the hip, the fullness at the bottom will balance out the top of me. Cute dress and I think it will be comfy in the summer.

This is with flash in my apartment. Yeah, lighting in my place is shit. Also, my dress form isn't adjusted for my fat so that's why the blouse doesn't fit properly in this pictures. It fits me really well.

I really liked something about this fabric. There are 2.5 yards with a good deal of soiling where it was folded but I'm going to do some research and soak the hell out of it and hope for the best. It was only $8 and still probably not worth the price per yard considering I have no idea whether it will come clean, but it really isn't a lot of money and if it does clean, then yea; I will make a shirt.
Completely gratuitous and pointless purchase of cotton flannel. It's spring for god's sake but there are 6 yards for a reasonable price and enough yardage to make a whole pair of pajamas....that's totally worth it, right?
Tell me, how in the world was I supposed to pass this up? Seriously. There was the cutest 30s novelty fabric with fish but it had been sold already. I know that I would have paid far more than i should have if it was available. So this is a really great second place purchase here. There are 2.5 yards and the wheels in my head are spinning madly. What can I make with this? I will think of something, I know it.

I believe that they are all a size 18 so perhaps my fat ass will fit into these. I am so terrible (read: lazy) at re-sizing patterns beyond some simple hems and maybe taking things in or letting them out at the sides. I probably won't do anything with a couple of these and will list them on Etsy or something but there are a couple I would love to get into for Spring/Summer. My cat, Murphy goes nuts when I knit...I am very scared to know what will happen when I attempt to sew.
Also, Dallas Stars beat the Caps last night. What?!
