However, I have just recently discovered the awesomeness that is Downton Abbey. I have watched the first season and have just started watching episode one of the second season. In the states it is shown on PBS's Masterpiece Theater and the episodes are combined into 2 hour long segments, it is kind of like a mini series. It is everything I love wrapped together into one fabulous package...It is set in "olden times", there is plenty of drama and scandal, olden times drama being better than contemporary drama since the clothes are better, and the wardrobes are great. I am having so much fun watching it and as per usual I am probably the last person to jump on this band wagon...I have to thank The Girl With The Star Spangled Heart for introducing me to this series since it is her posts that piqued my interest.
I have been doing a bit of sewing and have almost finished another dress from the McCall's pattern (M#6355) that I love so much. This time I used a wool challis and inserted a lining, I am happy with the results and all that is left is to insert the sleeve lining and hem it up...maybe I'll be done tonight! I sort of need to get it together with my Minoru Jacket....I am have been completely removed from my blogging since I returned from China and haven't planned my sew along participation at all, I think I'll do that this weekend.
Here are some pictures of my Wool Dress:
