A Comfy day dress

After all the holiday celebrations & dinners it is nice to chill out
& wear something comfortable....aka fat day dress, that iMade!

This dress was made using my New Look 
pattern 6936.  Another easy dress & it was an
easy sew but it had been laying around since summer for
me to finish it up!

I did make a change by ommiting the elastic around
the bodice.....I did sew it in & then seam ripped it out.
as you can noticeably see.

It was way more comfortable this way &
I  serged the neckline & butterfly sleeves in hot pink.

I really like this fabric from 
Laura's Fashion Fabric in White Rock, B.C.
& I think I am out of fabric (lol) so I will be there shopping soon.
Oh & "mom" necklace, the green amethyst ring &
white bootie slippers are all gifts from 
my loving family.

Sew you later!

A Vogue 8552 dress

A Vogue dress.....& yes it is very easy!

I like the pleats in this pattern, front & back

but is was the big pockets that
first interested me about this pattern.

I did misplace the sleeve part of this pattern,
this is the 2nd pattern I have done this.
So I picked this Simplicity that
look similar, & used that.

I made it in a size 12.

Sew you later!

70's Jumpsuit

I have been wanting a jumpsuit for awhile now
& I finally had some time to make one.

I used McCall's 6083 & it was an easy pattern to follow.

This silk jersey was a dream to sew up.
I was actually a little nervous to cut 
into this fabric....a bit more expensive
than my bottom of the bin bargain
fabrics I usually buy.

The only adjustment I had problems with
was the bodice cross keeps gapping,
but an easy fix.

I made version E bodice with version B crop pants.

Sew you later!

P.S.  don't mind the dying mandarin orange tree.....I live in Vancouver not Portugal!
