CUTTIN' UP! - A New Dress........Times THREE!
So.....this past weekend I cut out three dresses. Yes! Can you believe it? THREE! Figure I'd better capitalize on that kind of energy while I had the chance! Didn't really feel like sewing but felt like cuttin' up some stuff - lol! It's always nice when the cutting is out of the way! Linings, interfacings....the whole nine yards - DONE! Nothing to do now but sew! I could tell you my pattern choices....but I'll keep you in suspense.
The fabric choice for one of the dresses has a "story" behind it - doesn't surprise you does it? - I know, me neither. I had no intentions of cutting out the third dress until I glanced over the sewing instructions. They appear to be sew simple! I couldn't resist.
I'll be adding a lining to one of the dresses and will underline the skirt of another. Both in the absence of instructions as the patterns don't require it. And...guess what????
I didn't discriminate. There's one Vogue, one McCall's and one Simplicity! I've even coined names for them all.....check it out - the Vogue I'm calling "The Bold and The Beautiful", the McCall's..."Gray's Anatomy" and the Simplicity "It's A Jungle Out There". I know.....the titles just popped in my head....what can I say? It's all relative....you'll see.
I was hoping to have something completed by this weekend, but probably will not. It's been a busy week which will end with an out of town college football game on Saturday. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! Stay tuned.......... and as always.....BE BLESSED!
