Change in plans…

Change is the only constant and I do believe that to be true!  My sister really wanted Vogue 1223, but the fabric that we received wasn’t the right stuff.  I was able to get in touch with the seller in NYC, but they were out of what we had ordered.  While relaying all the drama to my sister, she did a total change and asked if I could just make a her a basic dress if I’d be  able to get it done faster.  Well, of course!  LOL.  I scouted for some local fabric on Friday night and spotted this lovely faux dupioni at Joanns.  Here is the almost finished product!


I LOVE IT!!!!  The dress just needs to be hemmed and then I want to do some little thread loops at the waist for a belt.   I have some pink sweater knit that I’m going turn into a short cardi tomorrow night.  I think it’s going to be adorable.  🙂  I haven’t sewn a dress in forever, so it was fun doing this one.  I used a burda pattern for the top and stole the skirt from a mccalls pattern.  She’s planning to wear it with a black belt and black shoes, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she goes with a pink once she sees it.   The top is just a standard one with bust darts and waist darts.  The skirt is dart free.  It was a simple dress to put together, but I did have to really think through how to do the invisible zipper.   It’s good to use the brain though!!!


Happy Sewing!
