 Completed Crafty Kit dress

This is an awesome project!  I’m a novice in the sewing department, but found this pattern to be fairly simple overall, with just enough difficulty to keep me interested.  I love it!  The only modification (if you can call it that) is that I didn’t cut it off to the midcalf.  I prefer longer skirts and dresses, so I gave it a one inch hem, which was perfect.

I just ordered some fabric online from fabric.com to make the sleeveless version.  This is my first online fabric purchase – I hope I’m not disappointed.  Here’s a look at the swatch:

So.  I finally gave in to my extremely annoying vision issues – distance vision sucks, but it always has and now, my close vision has hit the skids, which means eye makeup/eyebrow grooming is next to impossible.  Anyhow, I bought one of those little girly shavers that are for facial and, ahem, certain below the belt grooming issues.  I bought it with my eyebrows in mind, but I digress.  I tried it out this morning and I’m happy to report that it worked like a charm, except that….along with the unibrow, I’m missing a bit of my left eyelashes.  Apparently eyelashes get in the way and if you’re not careful, this is what happens.

I guess now we’ll find out how long it takes for lashes to grow back.😋
