from my dressing room.....

Rain has descended on Vancouver after a month 
hot hot heat so it is a high heeled boot 
kinda of day.


I did some seams on the serger with this dress.

Sew you later.

Blue Marine Dress.....inspiration.

The design for this dress has been in
my mind for a couple of years 
when I saw this dress from 
Blue Marine.

I made a summer version with short sleeves
using a New Look 6936 pattern.
I omitted the tie gathering at the
upper bodice.

The fabric is a jersey/knit that I found
at Laura's Fashion Fabric in White Rock BC.
& as this is a very easy pattern only
a couple of hours to finish.
This was another dress that was
tossed into a pile to be finished
from last year!

Sew you later!

iDesigned a Dress

I am finally finding a 
little time to finish up
some sewing projects
that I started last summer! 
Seriously....this was cut out 
& pinned.

This dress iDesigned from
leftover cotton fabric &
thread.  I really hate to
waste thread that is
sometimes left on the
spool so this
dress has pink, turquoise,
white & black threads.
I also made back darts,
elastic gathering
with a simple shift
style front.

I will be wearing this
dress on my
Fashion Friday Runway

Sew you later!

of my faves for hot summer days.

Hot hot heat I know this dress borders on Mu Mu territory but when
you have been having the freaking heat wave we have been 
having.....well this is about the best dress EVER!

I really like the racer back style that fits perfectly with my
one & only racer back bra.....

& this 100% cotton like silk fabric is the coolest.

After these past 4 years of sewing I am still liking this un even hem &
 oh my suede Fergalicious wedges too.

This McCall's 6954 pattern was on the bias & took a lot of time to cut out
but well worth I was the only one cool at the office today!

Sew you later!
