It's been awhile since I've sewn something for myself, I decided on an easy Vogue pattern as a warm-up piece:


I picked up the fabric from JoAnn's, a beautiful dark blue suede with a wonderful light blue silk butterfly fabric for the lining:


I was so excited that I quickly cut out the fabric and began sewing:

Collar work

I was so into sewing I didn't bother to take note of the instructions, which caused me to make a design modification. Note the design drawing:

Now notice my design:

Yep I forgot the 'V' in the collar

However, I didn't forget the other details, check them out:

Inside lining

A peak at the top stitching

Hemming it up!

Of course no dress is complete with out accessories:

Earring and necklace set from Cato's

Bring it all back together.....

My goal is to have a new post the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month.  Wether it be a 'me made' or a 'oh look what I found', I hope you will join me on my new journey.

Until stitch at a time!
