Yellow Dress Update

Both the chosen yellow dress, McCall's 3133 and another Simplicity 3835 top have been cut out. I'm working on the BBW top first to get warmed up and also for some quick gratification. I understand the love that Simplicity 4429 got in the poll, but I forgot to mention that this wasn't an old sheet, in fact, it had never been used. So the fabric has quite a bit of snap and structure to it that I think the more architecturally designed dress (M3133) would work better in. I do have a light cotton print, seen here, that I think I might make S4429 out of when I pick that pattern up again.

And I just added another project to my seemingly endless to-do list.

New Look 6939

A little OOP shift dress pattern, New Look 6939, that I love is now in the running to be made out of this Alexander Henry Chocolate Mocca print I bought two years ago.



I had been waiting for the right pattern and I had it all along. I was going to use S4429 but why mess around with pattern alterations when I KNOW I love this pattern AND that it will fit straight from the envelope? In fact, since I made the first dress over 5 years ago in leaf green linen, I've gained a bit of weight and the fit is different on me, less smock-like. I really like it now. And did you see where it says Easy and 2-Hour? Hey, it's calling my name!
