2012 goals: [Make a dress] sneak peek

It’s November 1 and in case you’re keeping track, I have 3 major 2012 goals left on my list. I also have a few on my DC list, but they will likely carry over to 2013. I could potentially knock out the museums, but I’ve definitely missed my chance for orchard picking.

However, if when I complete the last 3 goals on my list, I will be very proud of myself and won’t feel as if I’ve failed in my 2012:do more campaign at all.

My dog certification is well on it’s way. I was a little held up by my ACL surgery, but I’m aiming to get back on track this weekend and I have my trip all booked to see not only the Manchester girls in December, but also my sis, her hubby, and my wee nephew, Lewis.

So really, that just leaves the big one…MAKE A DRESS. Which at this stage, I have absolutely no doubts it will be completed. I’ve been tipping away at it the past 2 weeks while my mom was here. I was confident I could do it on my own, but I also felt a little rusty so it really worked out that she was here to offer advice and to help out. I will admit she helped me with a lot of the pressing and cutting as it was hard with a bum leg, but I’ll definitely take credit that I made the dress, doing 85% of the work.

I still have a few finishing touches to do and need to finish putting in the zipper, but there’s no reason I can’t finish up the dress this weekend! Here is a sneak peek, just so you can be sure I’m well on my way! The color of the dress is in line with this season’s oranges and corals, but I have no doubt I’ll be wearing it proudly for many years to come.
