Hey everybody! Happy Thursday! I hope you're having an awesome week! My week has been great! I've been able to tackle some sewing projects, and plan for some upcoming videos! I'm hitting the road today to ride down to Hobby Lobby, because they have Simplicity patterns on sale, and I'm crossing my fingers they have the new patterns in stock! (....they didn't LOL)!
Today I'm sharing with you Justice and I latest mommy and me look. This one is probably my favorite so far because it is one of my favorite dress styles ever and thats a wrap dress! I am so happy with the final look of these and I can't wait to go twinning!! Lets chat about my dress first!
For my dress, I used Simplicity 8608 View A! I love this dress and all the ruffles! For size, I cut the 16 and I quickly realized I cut the wrong size! SMH! I ASSUMED the dress flowed away from the body, so I only went with the finished bust measurements! Needless to say, once I looked at the pattern pieces for the skirt and saw the finished measurements for the hips, I knew the 16 was a NO NO!!
So to fix it, I measured out the extra width that I would need for my hips and graded from the 16 at the waist over to the extra fabric at the hips. (Whew...that was a save!) BUT then, I made another mistake (I know, I know) and totally forgot to add length to the skirt! I had every intention of adding at least 2-2.5'' inches to the hem but cut before marking the extra length out! SMH! So its a little shorter than I liked but, its not too bad, and I still feel comfortable in it!
Justice dress was made using New Look 6442 View C! I was so happy when I finally found this pattern at Hobby Lobby because it was out of stock at my local Joann and Walmart! I cut the size 3 and it fits her great! This is a true wrap dress pattern. It was a snap that holds the wrap part on the inside, and ties at the side! If i make it again (I most likely will) I'll add ties on the inside as well and omit the snap.
For fabric, I found this really pretty Floral Cotton Sateen at Hobby Lobby! It has a little stretch and sewed up great for these dresses! I saw it today while in the store, but passed on getting more for another print that I fell in love it! Check out my Instagram Story to see it!
Justice was full of energy for this photoshoot! These were the best out of 50! LOL!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Until next time...
