A different view = View B

Hi all!…I may seem to be posting a lot this month however March is Craft Month and I do consider sewing to be a craft so I’m participating too….I am going to try to whip up or work on something sewing related or crafty each day this month…Today was no exception because as soon as I woke up I went into my sewing room and started working on a new dress…I flipped through my patterns and my New Look pattern grabbed again; only I made a different view…(remember my Gray dress I blogged about a little while ago?….this is the same pattern but just a few differences….
View B, the sleeveless version caught my eye this go ’round so I started whipping it up…I just finished it a while ago and this is one crazy dress…but I LOVE it!..(what does that say about me? wait, don’t answer that lol)…that super cool neckline that this pattern displays was again called on to make this dress pop…I also used some funky fabrics to make it even crazier…
I learned a lot while making this one…On my Gray dress I omitted the zipper but for this one I installed it….I also was able to practice my hook and eye installation again…Pleating was also required which I must say I’m getting better at….
Now I know this version was supposedly sleeveless but when I was whipping this baby up I was playing around with the armhole facings and like the frilly way it looked when they were flipped out….I like them tucked in also which actually gives me two looks out of this dress!…How cool is that?…well let me share then…

My new dress with the armholes tucked in

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
