Lucky, Lucky, Lucky- Simplicity 1665


lucky 1

Several months ago at Mary Jo’s Cloth in Gastonia, I found a wonderful linen-look  fabric in the anime quilt fabric section. Yes, the anime quilting section. Don’t act like you don’t shop it.  I crooned to it and it followed me home. This may be my favorite dress of the summer and its only April! I’m becoming sheath obsessed. Many contrasting fabric ideas circled my pointed head, but you know- this fabric needs no enhancement. So a small red bias tape trim separated 2 seams and hopefully drew the eyes upward- I’ve been told recently by a very smart lady that this is a good thing! The pattern:

Ready?

I first saw this pattern back in May of 2013 in a very frisky snakey pants suit on My Art Attack now she is back conveniently on Pattern Review with another this week- go see that, but OHH and AHH over me first of course. Sadly, some cats were decapitated during this make- I am most sorrowful. IMG_6247

Ok, I skipped the zip- are you shocked? You know if I can wiggle in it, I will forgo a  zipper. Even if I have to grease these pork chops to do it!  I got mixed reactions at work. I think my office mates are now to jaded by my foolishness to even blink at  a lucky cat sheath dress on a tuesday. Some really liked it and told me- some avoided my gaze. Well, poo poo platter on them! I love it!!!!

Now If I were the fair Gjeometry, I’d give you a very interesting history of the Lucky Cat and we would all be edified. But I’m immature. I look at them and think they are either signalling the waiter or trying to teach a small child to high-five! What’s your feeling on all things Lucky and such?
