Two Piece Jersey Vogue 8935

Well Summer is definitely upon us! Warm weather outside including humidity and its nippy inside.. so much so I have on long sleeves and a heater under my desk lol.  I have so many things I have sewn and not worn I though I would pull this out.  This pattern was so cute when it came out last year from Vogue! I then found the perfect fabric in one of my many NYC trips! The fabric is definitely not too bold and its definitely not plain!

Cute buttons I found I believe at JoAnn’s!

Hanging on the dress form!
This fabric was definitely a dream to sew very easy and very quick! Would I make another set.. yes as it was easy.. As long as I find the “perfect” fabric again. No alterations were made to this pattern.
Necklace: JCrew
Shoes: Ann Taylor (2013 Season)

Maxi Dress Love! McCalls 6700


Did ya miss me??
Well I did create an outfit for Easter — dress beautiful brocade spring coat.. but I did not get the lining and buttons in time.. So I never finished the coat.. I hate UFPs (unfinished projects) — urgh but I will for sure get to it and maybe wear it for Mother’s day.. Any so I spent all of yesterday — yes on Easter finishing a self-drafted maxi skirt and this dress.. which I have to say I created in about two hours! It was a very easy sew.. love love it and the fabric feels great.. I can see many seasons  wearing this garment.. What you think yeah or nay??

generous and fits well.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the
pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes just like the

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes for the most
part, the small tie was a wee bit confusing as to where to place it. I am not
sure I would put it on the top again? However, that does give some character to
the shoulder area..

What did you particularly like or dislike about
the pattern?
Nothing it is a great maxi dress to sew! You can dress this up
or down.

Fabric Used: I am not quite sure as I obtained this from
the famous $2.97 table at G Street Fabrics. I know for sure it is a knit — I believe
it may have some lycra or spandex. It sews very well, stays put when you pin

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Nope none
I love the length and all

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend
it to others?
Yes I would and it is a good dress for

Conclusion: Great dress and I would sew this again!

Yeah or nay??

Cut Pink Wrap Neck Top

One of the items off the cutting table today ..

Originally made it in white that was a 4-way stretch fabric from Hancock but the fabric was stretchy and it turned out too big. I got another piece of ITY Jersey with lycra and it came out much better. I still had to cut the pattern down to at least a size 6 to fit well around the bustline.

I used McCalls pattern 6326 and sewed up the keyhole as well as cut a smaller size (6) love it!!!
