Hello my friends, I hope your Monday is going well. Mine has been busy, I wanted to get this posted this morning, but life gets in the way sometimes. I had to go get groceries while I had the chance. We are a one car family, strange, I know!
I have been yearning after some of the gorgeous dresses that I have seen on line, but cannot find in any of our stores. I found three Simplicity patterns though, and I have made two dresses so far and another is still in the works.
This one is Simplicity #2473.
I got the idea for the flower on the Shabby Apple website.
I may change the center of it. It is made out of organza, I pleated it using the iron and sewed it onto a piece of felt and glued a fastener onto that.
This one Simplicity #2308.
The yoke is very plain, so I made a small ruffle and sewed it onto it. But, I will have to modify it. I had to make my own belt, because I cannot find a navy belt in any of the stores I have been in so far. The other pattern that I have found is Simplicity #2360. I am hoping to show that one to you next week.
You have probably noticed that I haven't been visiting you as often as I had been, well...these dresses are why. It took me a day and a half per dress, I'm not very speedy, I'm afraid.
Have a wonderful day!
