I finally hemmed Butterick 5522. Prior to hemming it, I didn't particularly like it. My husband even commented that it looked like a choir robe! Not quite the look I was going for but I think he was right. With styling of jewelry, makeup, shoes and hair I like it a lot better.
I'm still in search of a good place to take photos since the weather has turned cold. I can't seem to get good photos inside and I don't like the look of fooling around with the exposure with photo editing software. The garage, with the door open, seems to be the best. Might need to rearrange a few things but I think it'll work.
Now that this dress is fiinished I can work on the pants refashion. My crafting is all over the place right now. I've been working on cards, I machine knit a blanket (which I forgot to phototgraph) finished up the dress and have a class to teach tonight at Joann's. There are not enough hours in a day!
