A Fox in the Foxglove


I love foxes; I don't know why.  For the last four years or so, I've been gradually building a collection of fox themed clothing items, like a hobby within a hobby.  I came across this Fox in the Foxgloves print on Fabric.com and knew I could make something stunning out of it.  How could it not look great with a print this gorgeous?!  So, with three yards of  this fabric and my trusty Simplicity pattern 1873 by Cynthia Rowley, I created this dress in about a week.  It took me longer to finish this dress than it has to complete most of the others I've worked on lately because this dress has sleeves.  Each sleeve has multiple pleats and a sleeve lining with a equal number of pleats.   I paced myself so I wouldn't get overwhelmed, but I still did.  After being able to turn out a dress in 6-8 hours, I felt like giving up after working on this dress for several days.  But, I stuck with it and I am ever so happy with the finished product.  I haven't made a sleeved dress with this pattern since 2016 when I hurried to finish it before the movers came to pack up our things and my OCD nagged me that there was an unfinished project waiting for me in storage.
