Friday Fabulousness.....white silk dress.........

The last of my summer projects........this is a dress I made from my silk wear on our wedding anniversary in November...... where we will be on a beach somewhere hot.

I had to take out the pin tucks to sew on all my seams........

I also made the flower out of a lighter silk.........

The inspiration for this dress...........Chanel 2009 Spring Collection.

Snow White Dress

I have been enjoying the hot sun this last week but I thought I better post some of my last minute sewing projects I made...... before summer really ends.

This was a simple white dress I made for my trip to California.....I added a slight ruffle at the top & today I am wearing it with a gingham tie with my blue cardigan.  I like these dress projects that are easy to sew & great for packing in a small suitcase.

Sew you later!

Sewing Circles.......& inspirations

I just returned from my fabulous vacation so I thought I would share with you a few sewing circles that I have joined this past month.......

I have not posted on the Sew Weekly yet & have just started posting on Self Stitched September, this is my Canada Day skirt that I am wearing.   I am new to Sew Weekly but I did participate in the Me-Made-March & really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful projects from around the world!  This is also my first summer vacation that I wore garments that I had made.......I went on a whirlwind last minute sewing & will post these projects soon.

Speaking of projects, I also adore these beautiful projects from two very talented seamstresses that I follow......

Janlynnsewmore made this feathered bag for her it!

Sewingaddictaa made this gorgeous explosion blossom dress & painted cool!

Sew you later!
