Button-Up Colette Pastille Dress

Hello there.
     Today is the day. This is the day that the year two-thousand and fourteen officially ends and a new cycle of three-hundred and sixty-five days begin. I am actually really excited about this coming year. Seriously, it is 2015. It ends in a 5. How. Cool. Is. That? Okay, okay, I admit it. I am a little strange, but I like things that end in zeros and fives!
      Anyway. . . I do not have a fantastic round-up post planned or an amazing year-end review of life. Instead, I have another dress to show you! I actually made this dress quite some time ago, but with all of the Christmas sewing and knitting that I have been doing, it is a wonder I accomplished anything! Introducing my Button-Up Pastille:

Dimples and Green Twirly Dress

Well, well, well. 
Things have been quiet about this old blog of mine. I have been rather busy during the past month or so since I last posted. I decided that I was going to make the majority of my Christmas gifts this year. A brilliant idea I know, except for the fact that I did not start making anything until about mid November. Now a normal person would think that that would be plenty of time to complete a few different projects. As we all know, I am not a normal person. I decided to begin knitting two unnamed objects which were both rather large undertakings. 
Add to that the fact that I decided to make Photographer Sister and myself some semi-matching Christmas dresses. We did not decide upon the pattern until about a week ago. Then I had to sew up some test versions and we both had to wear them to see how we liked the fit. Plus I am sewing a bag for each of my little brothers (there are four) and finishing up Dolly's Christmas dress. To sum it up, I have been rather preoccupied. Thankfully I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I have finished everything except for the aforementioned Christmas dresses, (which I will be working on today) one other project, and adding the finishing touches (buttons, blocking and weaving in ends) to the knitting projects. 
I am planning a Christmas dresses post, Christmas presents (my gifts to others) post, and possibly a Black Friday/Birthday/Christmas presents (to me) "haul" post or vlog.
