The April full moon has had me seriously awake! It has been spectacular, under clear skies every night. And then – the eclipse. Lucky folks on the Pacific coast got a full eclipse, complete with a blood moon. I’m jealous…
I went out around 6 a.m. to capture our partial eclipse here in South Florida. The sun was rising at my back, and the moon was very low in the west, so I was fortunate to get these shots (well, they are 2 of about a million that were not as nice). Left my tripod at the house, because I thought I could just walk out in the street and take pictures…but I ended up walking some distance to get away from foliage and street lights. Just me and the night critters.
My full moon project was a tunic version of New Look 6340 ‘Easy Dress’. Love it!
- I used size 14, my usual Big 4 size..
- The finished back length, measured from the center back neck, is 31 5/8″.
- My fabric is a soft, smooth cotton calico from JoAnns. It’s called Red Packed Roses – I used it for a Gabby tent dress previously. Wish I had more! But it and the Green Packed Roses are all gone.
- I love love that this dress has a bust dart, which I moved down 1 3/4″.
- All the seam allowances are serged on the edge and pressed open. Sleeve and skirt hems are finished at 1″.
- The facings come with the pattern and fit very nicely. They make the v-neck so easy to finish.
