The Verdict Is In!
So - I went out Friday to celebrate my birthday (I guess). My sister and her husband and my friend Alison showed up. The weather prior to going out was terrible so I gave the no shows a pass! We had thunderstorms and all sorts of warnings but, it cleared up just in time for me to get dressed and hit the streets. I had a fun time as usual. Anywhoooo . . .
Here is the pattern I picked
The dress was comfortable and fun! When I did a spin - the skirt would fly out! LOL!! It was an easy sew and fast too. Since I waited until the last minute to make the dress I needed a quick sew. The instructions were straight forward to follow. I just looked them over and did the sewing on my own. I changed the hem and used a rolled him on the serger to speed up the process. I did not add a zipper in the back either. This dress has a little extra room, so i didn't have to struggle to get it on. All in all a great dress. I may make this again, not sure. I received lot of compliments too!!! (always a bonus).

The fabric is from JoAnn and is a stretch charmeuse you can find it here
. As you can see, I constructed the dress so it is one color on one side and another on the other side. This fabric has an hombre effect from bright yellow to navy blue. I paired it with a nude belt and shoes since the fabric was so busy!!
