1 pattern...3 dresses

I have been going through my fabric collection & trying to use some of it up before I buy more.  I have had this pink plaid fabric for a couple of years now & have made 4 dresses with it already!  I still have enough leftover for a maxi skirt.

I used this easy McCall's pattern 6199.  I altered the pattern for the pink plaid dress by taking in the sides about 2 inches so there was no need for a belt.

The long sleeve version with black lace added to neckline & sleeves.

My bold print flower dress from the summer.  If you want a real easy dress to make this is the pattern!

Sew you later!

Exposed Minnie Dress

My "Minnie"dress was finished on time!

 I used New Look 6934 pattern but with an exposed zipper.

 I am most happy with the hot pink lining....some hand stitching but worth it.

 The front.....for some reason the skirt pattern does not have a time I will make one myself.

 For the exposed zipper I used Gertie's  you tube tutorial.  Very easy to learn & follow along!  She is awesome too.

 love how the inside looks

Sew you later!
