Happy Valentines Day!!! I've been a bit MIA but with good reason I promise!! I'll be able to share more with you all soon! This was my first year sewing an actual dress for Valentines Day. The years past I either waited too late, or didn't think about until I saw all my other sew sisters showing their beautiful dresses. This year, I planned for it though. Well not really planned, I was walking around Joanns 2 weeks ago and saw this fabric, thought it was gorgeous, and said "this would be so pretty for Valentines Day". LOL!! The rest is history!!
I wanted a simple bodice and skirt of my dress, so I went with McCalls 7536. This pattern was very nice to sew, and the instructions were easy to follow! It has a lined bodice, and depending on the view, the skirt can be gathered or pleated. I wish I would've picked the pleated skirt because the stretch in this fabric did not work well for the gathers. Speaking of fabric, I love it. It has two color ways the black, like the one I have, and a white. They are both gorgeous!!
Because of the gathers, and me not really interested in fixing them LOL, I'll probably make Justice a little dress from it. I don't see myself wearing it again, so I'll make something cute for her to enjoy this beautiful fabric in.
I hope you all have an awesome day, and I'll talk to you Thursday in the next post!!
