Snake! Sssssssssss!

Cynthia Rowley-Simplicity 2054

After blogging all day! Whew!  I'm tired!

When I first saw this pattern I thought - naaa!  Then I saw the Fabu Erica B's take and I said Oh Yeah! I admire her style and craftswomen ship. (cheese!)
Erica's Version of Simplicity 2054
She really sets it off and pumps out the outfits faster then you can check for a new post on her blog!  (I LUV her blog! True Diva she is!)  Wonderful inspiration!!

I get creative every once and awhile so I didn't want to "copy" Erica's dress only she can rock her style! (ya feel me?) Well, about a month ago my friend Grace made the dress "straight black" it looked great and she really liked the fit.  We have similar builds so I thought I'd give it a try.  She gave me her pattern so, I can't beat free right?!

For some reason (after it sat for 3 weeks) I had this vision of snake and cream that I've had in the stash both about 3 years. It feels good to get rid of old stash. I'm making room for more! (Tehehe).  So, I made this dress.  (View C w/Infinity Scarf)

I wore this to a "stepper's set" so it's rather loud but I love this dress. It's fits wonderfully and I picked up a new client! (good thing!)

Sleeve detail is cool. Hit right at the elbow!

This is the back of the cowl.  My fabric has no drape and pleats allowed it to drape nicely.

Dress back.
This dress was easy to make and would be a good project for a beginner. I think I may use this pattern again for a color block dress.  Can't seem to think of colors to use. Hmmmmmm?

Pattern Rated: Easy peasy lemon squeezie
I serged the whole dress expect on the hem. I used a twin needle for the hem and neck after serging the neckband on.  The fit on this dress is impeccable.  Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of me in it. (LOL! Yea, I know-bad blogger!)  And, the shoes or should I say boots I wore!

I wore these boots with cream tights.
I know this is a "fall/winter" outfit but I'm glad I got this post in before the "winter" was over!  LOL!!!!!! It's still cold in Chicago!


Enjoy this Video of two Powerful Steppers! Maybe, one week if I can, I'll post myself dancing when I go out! ;-)
