I have FINALLY done some sewing for me. I haven't really made much for Gray or myself lately since I made these dresses last summer...
After finding dress after dress on Pinterest that I absolutely love, I decided I needed a shift dress in my wardrobe. I love the conservative and funky style of most of the dresses, but the pricetag was NOT what I was looking for. Most of these I pinned cost at least $150!
Here are a few that I pinned and fell in love with.
I love the shapes of all of them, but this last one was my favorite. I love the longer hem length and the overall shape.
I went to the fabric store and found a super-cute and funky navy and cream polka dot. Only problem....it's polyester. YUCK! But for me to have a super-smooth-drapey dress....It had to be silky polyester. I love it on the bolt and once it's done...but trying to do a rolled hem and finish the edges without a serger is a total nightmare.
That being said....here is my new shift dress!!
Complete with tights and boots.
From the back
It's fitted, but not too tight, so no zipper, and still plenty of room for movement.
It has a very high neckline.
For a conservative, but fun Mommy
See how happy it makes me!!
I could kick myself for not making a paper pattern. I just lay down fabric, measure and cut. Now I want to make more and have to start from scratch!! Oh well...the fun is in the challenge.
Now I want a RED one.
