Sightseeing in Japan and Butterick 4789 pic heavy!


Sorry that you can't see the dress, but it really is hard
to photograph black dresses!


The dress close up before I added the back piece to the dress
and also that's M6164 that never got hemmed, sigh!
 
 I guess it's safe to say that I didn't sew a dress for my hubby's command Christmas party, and neither did I finish my B4789 for Thanksgiving(which is now OOP). I know tisk, tisk, tisk  lol! I did however, complete the hem for my B4789 this weekend in time to do some family sightseeing around Japan... This picture was taken in Kamakura about 20 minutes by train from where we live... The main attraction that tourist come to see in Kamakura is "Great Buddha" Although, my family and I are Christians, it was intresting to see other cultures interactions and their religion..

My hubby thoughtfully looking at the train directions to get us to Kamakura!
 B4789 is really a simple dress, I mean, truly and honestly! For heavens sakes it's only two pieces, yes two pieces. I've seen this style of dress around for a few seasons now, of which I can recall.. However, when I saw none other than the fabulous Diva extraordinaire herself . Beyonce wearing a purple twist front dress at one of the awards she attended this fall. I knew I wanted one too, and remembered that I had pattern B4789 to get me close....Although it is not a dead ringer for Beyonce's dress, it sure is close enough for me to smile*ting*!

   I also, saw in our NEX which is our on base shopping mall, if you will. A twist top shirt by none other than Mr. Michael Kors and it had the retail price around $69.50 ummm no offense, but I'll think I'll make one for around 10.00 dollars! Please and thank you lol! Okay, and back to our scheduled post about sightseeing, see I'm already getting off track here :) So, all in all B4789 dress was easy as pie can seriously be sewn within 2 hours or so, but if your like myself you take two weeks and beyond*sigh* now a deep heavy*sigggggh* lol!


While getting ready to board the train, it was packed to say the least!
People watching!
