Summer Outfit!

Beach Time

Hello dear friends, today with my last post for summer outfits, at least in my plans.  However, sewing summer outfits is something I do during the whole year because I am always waiting for cute patterns and wonderful inspirations to sew more beach outfits.  And yes! at the end that is what it matters to me, hot weather and beach;  It might has to do a lot because I am a tropical bird. I was born in a warm city with tropical weather in Colombia.
So for this last summer project I have made the pattern M7756 from McCall pattern company; it is portrayed as a not bra outfit, so it might not be convenient for  every body's taste. however in Colombia there is a saying that in English it does not rhyme: " the fashion trends are not uncomfortable" aka " la moda no incomoda".  anyways, it is not really true, walking the streets of Colombia you can find lots of people that could use fashion etiquette for certain body types.
here it is my outfit:

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!

A Sexy Dress

Twist Front Dress

Hello my dear friends, today in my blog I am introducing another sexy dress that was totally handmade by me, fitted to contour my body and red that is my favorite color.  The pattern is from the McCall company, I enjoyed and I would love to make another one;There was only one single fitting adjustment that I made at the waist area in the back pattern, so look in the notes below and I will give you more details. 




PATTERN:  McCall M7429
FABRIC: Red scuba knit
FABRIC STORE: Jo-Ann fabric store in Kennesaw.


FITTING ADJUSTMENT NOTE:
This dress have not darts to make fitting adjustments and I also knit fabrics with dart looks kind of awkward.  So what we can do since this pattern is not cut on fold is: right around the waist line in the center back you are going to make half a dart with bowed lines instead of straight lines, just because the curves makes the adjustment softer.
I adjust my pattern and dresses to my body, Instead of trying to adjust my body to ridiculous measurem…
