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!)

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.|
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!
(SEW ON TREND - SEW ON TREND - SEW ON TREND) *sigh*
