I kicked the door open last year, and joined the 20/20 club and today it’s 20/20 plus 1!
Heck, I feel good and my hubby sais I look great, he’s a sweetie. But most importantly I thank my Lord and savior Jesus Christ for allowing me to see 41! amen!!!!
I've had this pattern in my stash for quite a while, just saving it for that “right fabric”. It’s got to have the right color, flow and drape etc, etc, etc. Now, I know I cant be the only one that does that?…., saving patterns or saving fabric,…. but then again I can be a bit special like that, lol. As I was going thru my blogroll, I came across this post by Sharon. The post title alone, was – tha - truth, (Twirl baby twirl!) I sooo loved her dress, fabric and all! Where did she find that funky fabric, it’s perfect …..wait a minute……hold up, don’t I have something like that in my stash somewhere!? What? ……… Sharon, you’ve inspired a copycat, lol.
Pattern Description: calf length dress has semi-fitted, pleated and lapped bodice, bias skirt with inseam pockets and stitched hems
Pattern Sizing: I used a 14
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think so, yep!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were a breeze!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Nothing to really dislike, I like the bias cut, and I lurve me sum pockets!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did what’s becoming my usual, a fba. I also added 2 in. to the bodice and decided to sew the tie together so the wrong side didn't show. Oh, and I decided to leave my hem raw! Let it hang a bit before hemming.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, she’s a keeper, I do recommend.
This was a really easy sew, the instructions were very clear and it definitely has twirl appeal !
Well, I hope you're loving this Fall weather, I certainly do it’s never been this cool here (Houston) so early in the season for us, so I’m enjoying much cooler evenings!
Til next time C-ya!
