My daughter and I needed some new clothes. We decided to go window shopping on line and pin all of our favorites-"pindowshopping". Then we went and bought fabric and patterns to achieve the looks for less. Checkout our board here. Please join me every Monday (until I get bored) to see me knock-off the latest fashions.
I love a good wrap dress. Figuring flattering and timeless-here are 2 inspirations:
I found this pattern: McCalls 6024 $.99
I started w/ view C (the black and white one), but the flounce looked stupid-I looked like a clown and that's just not what I was going for. It might have worked better w/ a thinner fabric, but I picked it all out and and sewed the facing back on w/out the flounce. I've got to say, that I'm pretty pleased w/ the results. The pattern was pretty straight forward, I wouldn't tackle it for your first sewing project, but if you are an intermediate seamstress give it a try. FYI: I added a pleated ruffle to the bottom.
Have you ever worn a wrap dress outside when the breeze blew your dress wide open? EMBARRASSING! Not wanting to flash my local congregation, I took some hot pink satin and made a simple skirt (I made it using this technique here). Also check out the paint on my leg. I didn't notice it until my hubby pointed it out in church. I'm starting a new trend:)FYI: I'm doing a pleated ruffle skirt lesson for my Sewing 101 on Friday. My sister is at this very minute picking up my new niece in Korea and I want to make here a skirt.
