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!

I designed this beach dress

 hacked from a skirt pattern, 

so I am calling it a Skirtress.

I used a New Look 6470 skirt pattern. 

and the very last of this hot pink fabric!

Sew you later!

Hot Pink Dress

From this.......

to this.......a couple of hours...

using Butterick 5211, view C.

I added 2 inches to the sleeves &
as this dress will be for the office,
kept it just below the knee.

Sew you later!

the traveling skirt

Hello again Blog Friends!
Well I just returned from traveling & one of my fave
skirts went missing from London to Paris (my luggage
had a sticker on it saying it was a random check).
So what's a girl to do?......well sew up another one
of course, with the exact same fabric!

I used my New Look 6571 pattern & added in-seam pockets.

Oh & if you see my skirt walking around in Paris
this is the label inside ;)

Sew you later!
