My Cowl Neck and Open Back Dress

My Vogue 1531

Hello my dear readers, this time I am bringing a review of the vogue pattern V1531 by the designer Julia Alarcon from the McCall pattern company.   Let's first start by saying that this dress is an eye catcher and I am not kidding.  I felt like the bright star of the night in every hall that I walked in my last trip with my family, if you are trying to get somebody's attention, I highly recommend this pattern.
To make this dress I didn't make any changes to the dress at all, I really love the fact that it snuggles my body and I still don't feel embarrass about it (  I have to much time needing to exercise but I don't have time, I don't have space and let me say I just miss Florida where I could do it at any time and anywhere).
I love the cowl neck, it is like a dress with an accessory included and that is a plus for me.

Fabric: navy crepe suiting
Fabric store: Jo Ann fabric Store
pattern: Vogue 1531

 I love the back opening and besides it doesn't gap; I feel the dress is elegant, lovely and sexy but it still keeps the image of a married woman with a 3 years old boy. I did have lots of fun with the dress and it didn't keep me from holding and playing with my son.

Let me know what do you think of my dress, I wish all of you a happy new Year in 2018 and don't forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me in the social media.

God Bless You!

The Jessica Dress

Pattern by Mimi G
Dear friends, here I am today with a cute dress and new favorite pattern from Mimi G Style.  A few months ago she gave this pattern for free and I jumped in and got mine, It was a downloadable file, you can print it at home or at a store.  It runs by letter sizes like S, M, L etc.  I cut the size M and even thou the pattern call for only 0.3 mm I had to sew a lot more than that to fit me.  I love this pattern, I am ready to make it much more of what I thought at the beginning, it is easy, simple and elegant; you can make the skirt in many different lengths of  your preference and me personally, I feel the dress can be used all year, spring, summer and fall.  You can add a simple Torero or a long sleeve shirt under the dress and you will be warm if needed.  Here is the mine!

Cocktail Dress

Hello my dear friends, here I am again with a cute pattern but even better yet, exquisite fabric that I have been looking for at least a year. Ever since I saw the pattern from McCall 6696 I knew that I wanted to make it just like the one in the cover but I could not find the fabric to make it just like that. One day in a trip to Atlanta, My husband let me down at Joann's Store to see what was new and there I found my fabric and wait! ...... in 70% discount, from $29 dollars I paid $9 dollar per yard.  So believe me, I was really happy that day.  I have treated this dress with so much care and I have enjoyed every part of making it.

Pattern Review: I love it and can not wait to make it again but probably with different features. I did not make any changes to the pattern and I did sew the size 14 which it has all my measurements.
I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopef…
