One Armed Bandit All Color Blocked Up!


McCall's 6240

I first made this dress last year for my sister's Fab. 50 Birthday party and Fab-u-loso she looked! 

Isn't she Divalicious-Gorg!!
This pattern sat in my stash for about a year and I whipped it out weekend before last.   My husband and I went out last Saturday night.  This is was an option to do Super Sexy!  Since I'm married I save sexy for him. LOL!!! Anywhoooooo. . . (LOL!) This dress took about an hour to make (my sister's took much longer).  It's made from scraps! It was completely serged except for the neckline.  I did view C with a long sleeve and added a band to the sleeve so that totally eliminated hemming.  The front and back are bias cut and the pattern calls for knit but I think a soft woven fabric would work well too.  Since I have a large bust (shut up!) I added a casing and 1/4" elastic at the neckline.  The instructions say fold down and do a narrow hem. (No can do - no workie workie). I also shortened the torso by 2". The length was perfect!

 This dress was a winner!!  Lot's of complements Saturday night oh, and from my husband too! (Lol!)

Fuzy cell phone pic.

He always looks sleepy! LOL!!
 And don't forget the SHOOZE!!!! All the way form Pittsburgh, PA! Fashion in Pittsburgh?
Uh Yea! I found some!

This dress was great for some cool jewelry!  Thanks again to Mimi G. I have overdosed on Forever 21 and Charlotte Rousse buying Bracelets and gaudy rings!!  (My fingers and wrists are Forever grateful!)

Super Sexy and Super Simple!!  A Wonderful Combo!  This  is my new summer TNT pattern.  I will make it again as a maxi and whip up the asymmetrical style and ina solid and with a short sleeve and ina animal print and ina plane and ona train , witha goat ona boat. . .(take a breath!)

Talk Soon Carol
