Perfect Stripes with McCalls 6086

Hey again!

Here is a jumpsuit I make a few weeks ago but didn’t have the perfect occasion to wear it! Well we went to an improv Brunch at the Beacon yesterday and I needed something quick! Boom! Add some fats and a tried and true BCBG clutch and its on an popping!

I got so many complements on this! I did not purchase quite enough knit because of the odd matching but it seemed to work out OK, and it was well liked by quite a few 🙂

Unfortunately this shows a bit more junk in the truck that it should lol

No alterations were done except the extreme matching and I added the tie to this view.  Fabric is from the
G Street $2.97 Table..

Pretty Polka Dot Dress with Vogue 1395

Beautiful Morning in Downtown Silver Spring! Thanks Brittney for the photoshoot 🙂

This is Vogue 1395 and the Fabric I used is from G Street! It was the last piece on the roll! Love love love the feel of this its a rayon with no stretch.. Its a nice sunny yellow with pink polka dots..
This was constructed a bit differently where you made an additional piece for the back with gathers at the top and it ties in the front.. It really didn’t take that long to sew but be mindful of the instructions as they can be confusing..
I made mine a tab bit longer than the pattern and the models.. Cause I just like it that way lol no fit problems.. I cut a 10 on the top and a 12 on the bottom and widened the hips :-9 I did not care for the lining for the skirt so I just omitted it.. 
By the way pay no attention to the massive ball on my head.. its the summer and its hot! lol I get a blow-out later!
Cute hun 😉
