I'm overdue on choosing a pattern for this month. Hopefully, the process of mustering the courage to sit at my sewing machine isn't as daunting this year as I made it out to be in 2010. I'm not sure why sewing is so much more intimidating for me than knitting is... It really doesn't make sense.
Pattern: Simplicity 4617- wikia dates it as "early 60's". I'll be sewing view 2, the short sleeved variation.
The suggested fabrics types leave options pretty wide open, so I've decided to work with a midnight/navy blue suiting fabric I picked up at JoAnn with the assistance of a 50% off coupon. I grabbed my notions while I was there, so I won't have any excuses not to take care of business!
My first goal is to get my pattern cut before I melt into the sofa on Sunday for the Packers/Bears game. Sunday is going to be an emotionally draining afternoon over here, and depending on the outcome of the game, I may fall into a brief debilitating depression.

That is very cute! you might want to try it in a print rather then a plaid because plaids take more material to match up the pattern at the seems.
