Maybe you guys have realized by now…..I love dresses! I always have. I love making them and wearing them.
I have this retro pattern (Simplicity #1101) cut out in the pink floral. I love the high neckline in the front and the criss-cross in the back. Hopefully, I will finish it this week and post a photo (fingers crossed!)
I hope your summer is going nicely. I spend a lot of time at the beach during the summer. I love simple, fun dresses to throw on with my flip-flops. This is another one of the dresses I completed out of the fabric I purchased in Hawaii last year. I made these dresses for just that; I throw them on with flip-flops to run to the supermarket, to take a walk on the beach, or over my swimsuit mid-day to grab a bite to eat before relaxing back at the beach. This dress is a halter dress (Simplicity A2884), it has a little boning in the back, a side zip and slightly gathered skirt, with a tie at the neck.
Hello, all! I realize I haven’t posted in a while, however, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been sewing. My official photographer/assistant (aka, my teenage daughter) has’nt been around much lately to take pictures. I started on my spring/summer sewing and completed a few of the dresses I planned to make from the fabric I purchased while vacationing in Hawaii last summer. This dress was so easy to make, I’ve had the pattern around for a few years (Burda #7225). It has a side zip and pockets (I didn’t add the pockets). I love wearing it! It is easy and fun with sandals or flip-flops.
So, I spent some time at the beach this weekend soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the warm weather.I returned Monday night with Spring Fever!
I really want to start my summer sewing, and I have these fabulous tropical prints that I purchasedwhen my family and I vacationed in Hawaii last summer.I can’t wait to use this Kwik Sew pattern #K3610,to make a few new sundresses for the beach.
However, summer sundresses will have to wait another week (I can’t believe I just said that???).
I am so excited to attend the Sewing Expo in Washington next week, and the national weather meteorologist tells me that it is still very cold in Washington 🙁 , therefore, I think I will sew a new coat for the occasion.
My last issue of Sew News featured the Clare coat (Closet Case Patterns) with three-quarter length sleeves (I LOVE three-quarter length sleeves).Furthermore, I also plan to make it in the fuchsia color as well.
I love to sew and I love all things vintage; especially fashion from the 1950’s and 1960’s. I sew from modern and vintage patterns. I get excited over finding and purchasing vintage patterns! Sew Fabulous is my place to document my sewing projects and how I style my handmade pieces into my daily life.
Feel free to leave a comment, I will read all of them.
