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.

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 measurements.

This is my Result!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and can find it interesting and inspiring.
Have a nice week and God Bless you All!

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…
