YAY! another summer dress

Hello, all!

Maybe you guys have realized by now…..I love dresses!  I always have.  I love making them and wearing them.

YAY!  Another summer dress from the Hawaiian prints.

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!)

Summer Dresses

Hello, all!


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.

Return from hiatus!

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.
