How ya doing......

I'm still here!!!  Just been too swamped to blog. The funny thing is, I have 17 posts in drafts that I never could figure out how to post on a schedule, and those were in June!! O_o    Anyways, I've sewn up quite a few projects since then, but no use in keeping the others in draft waiting so I'll began with this one from McCall's.


              
                                                          McCall's 6503

            I made this one up some time ago, and it's been in heavy rotation every since! I
                 made view A, in a faux denim, size14, with unneeded alterations, lol.
                                       Lemme explain.

              


 See, what had happened was:
When I made this dress, for some reason, (and I don't know why) I did a fba! One of the biggest mistakes!! To be honest, it was completely unnecessary. Firstly, the fabric was a stretchy type faux denim, second I made a dart instead of moving it down to the gathers and third this dress ended up being a little too big in that area!


Yep, I made some rookie mistakes but I wearz it anyways, lol. I mean, ..I do love, the stand up ruffle collar, it's pretty, and this dress really was easy to sew, plus I love the fabric. This baby is getting worn regardless, too easy to slip on, yeah buddy.


I mean, who gon point out the bodice is a little too baggy, and extra largish, uhm-K?

  3. Glad to have you back! I like this dress, I even have the pattern, but I can't get around to making it up. I think the bust area looks OK.
