Last week I had an engagement to attend that required something a little on the formal side. I looked through my patterns and I couldn't find anything. I also posted my delimma and one of my online friends suggested the new Vogue 1374 (Thanks Rene'e). Needless to say that even after her advice, which was a good choice, I still felt something else was in order for this situation. So, I continued to search through patterns and match fabric. Then my camera guy (my son)
|When I am taking photos, there is never a dull moment. He keeps me laughing.|
Since he picked out the pattern, I decided to let him pick out the fabric and zipper ( I didn't want to tarnish the Super Mom vision). He is normally pretty good at dressing himself, but I don't know about how well he was going to dress me. The pictures that I am posting are not of me in the dress and I have to apologize for that one. But I have Sarah adjusted to full size and partially dressed (under garments) to my body shape so that we all can see what the finished garment actually looks like. I have tried the dress on and it did fit me perfectly just the way I wanted. Here is Sarah in the pattern and fabric reveal.
|This is the pattern he chose. Butterick 6582.|
|Added an invisible zipper of a contrasting color.|
|Edge stitching on the bodice facing.|
Sad to say I was unable to make the social event, but there is always next year and I have the perfect dress for the occasion.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and I look forward to our next adventure very excitedly. I've started Christmas presents so Sarah will be my model for the next few post. Happy Holidays and lots of sewing fun to you.
