weekly photo challenge: spring

about an inch above the measuring tape you can see the small pleat I made, hand stitching small facings on either end... hope it's not too long this time!

Spring, n. [AS. spring a fountain, a leap.] 9. The season of the year when plants begin to vegetate and grow… Spring of the astronomical year begins with the vernal equinox, about March 21st, and ends with the summer solstice, about June 21st.

Lots of ways to use the word “spring” and  I had to move down the list to get to the season, which has passed the halfway mark without much real change in the weather. (grumble, grumble ~ haven’t been able to think anything but fleece for months)

However, I’ve finally begun to bring out clothes for warmer weather, and to make some changes.  To wit…

Remember this dress from last year?   I’d always felt it a little short. Having discovered a bit more of the fabric during my organising bout, I decided to remedy the length by adding a piece, putting a slight excess into a small side pleat.  Much more in keeping with the dress (pleats at neckline) than a ruffle.

Hopefully, more to come in weather, and something besides fleece!
