Sewing the 80s into My Heart

Perhaps a bit fancifully titled, but that's because I'm fancifully enamoured with this dress. I talked big talk about it here, and I've actually followed through. SO HAPPIES!

And for several reasons.

1) It looks so late 70s/early 80s. And that makes me smile.
2) It was another one of my used-store pattern finds.
3) I sewed this thing in less than 24 hours, and that's from cutting the fabric to finishing details!
4) I successfully included French seams, thus removing all need to hand stitch stupid raw edges.
5) Pocketsssss!
6) I'm well on my way to using up my fabric stash. And boy, do I love this birdie fabric!

Truly, I could go on, but I'll limit it to 6 and ask:
Have you been getting into the Springtime mood lately? That's another reason this dress exists and makes me happy. The idea that above 0 Celsius temperatures are coming along makes me a happy camper.
