Electric Geometrics! What I Wore To Church Sunday - Butterick 5353

The sun peeped out every now and then while I was taking these photos on Sunday.  Hope you get the picture!  Warning:  some pics are hazy. 
This is a VERY comfortable dress!  Love the full lining!

This fabric was in Virginia's stash.  She had used some of it to make a toaster cover and had quite a bit left.  Wait.....did I say toaster cover?  I meant to say TOASTER COVER!  Yes.....she did!  I could have done the same except....... I don't have a toaster......a toaster oven? yes - a toaster? - no!  Why not a dress?!
  
My biggest fear was that the neckband would not fit properly and it doesn't.  It's not terrible but it's quite noticeable in the back.  I should have gone down a size for the neck band.  Lesson learned.  Hook looks undone here.

Inside front view.  This cotton blend fabric that I used for the lining was also in Virginia's stash.  I appears to have some rayon and maybe even a touch of polyester?????? in it. 

 
Excuse the wrinkles but she'd had a "workout" by the time I put her on the dress form for this pic! 

Such a "classic" look in my opinion.  Believe me, the sweater came in handy!
 
Yep!  I visited a church today and it was a chilly!  

Love these shoes.  I must get some type of padding to keep my feet from thrusting forward though.  It was down right uncomfortable at times.....my eight dollar Worthington shoes from JCPenney! 

BE BLESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!
