Red, White & Blue


Hi There......

This is my first post to share with you under my new blog name........I love dressmaking and this my little spot in blogsphere to share my dressmaking creations with you......hope to inspire you if not just to give you something a little different......as my designs are not always on trend nor are they the same as everyone elses........as I like to mix it up!

This dress came about by me looking for fabric for the making of a skirt for our Canada Day celebration........there was a limited selection of fabric but there was an abundance of red, white & blue fabric!  This fabric was at the back....... high up peeking through for me to see these gorgeous flowers............I love florals and I loved this bold fabric.


This fashion knit fabric was perfect for a summer dress I was thinking of.......


a pattern from McCalls 6199.....an easy dress to make.........


this pattern has bust darts for the fit and it hangs loose at the sides.....hem the raw edges & your done......



I wear my dress with a belt and because it is a knit fabric and I was tired I did not hem.....I will see how this wears and then make hems if needed!

I will be linking this up to my Fave Parties!

sew you later!
