How’s the good folks that follow my blog this here evening?…I’m well; I’ve been sewing so that means I feel really good!…of course I still have life issues but while in my sewing room they are NOT allowed!…I have made a couple new dresses this week…One from my usual (New Look Patterns) but the strapless little number I created from a McCall’s pattern…now I love, love, love New Look Patterns but I have to admit that their instructions are more often than not hard to follow…So not true about the McCall’s pattern I used today…the instructions were extremely easy to follow making the dress a breeze to whip up…I may have just sold myself on McCall’s patterns…I created the first dress out of a cool Orange linen I snatched up at Hancock’s Fabrics and the second one from one of the very first fabrics I ever purchased when I first started sewing…the McCall’s pattern was the very first pattern I bought too…I am just now getting around to understanding it…I also learned a new technique: boning!…it is a structural technique to add the fitted look to my new halter dress….it worked like a charm as well…I am sooo pleased with the McCall’s dress and I will definitely be buying more of them…Well I guess I will share now….Brace yourself, these dresses are the bee’s knees! LOL
P.S. the Orange dress is View E of New Look Pattern # 0167…I made View C earlier and posted about it before!….
View E is the one in the yellow-orange dress in the middle…kinda small; sorry ’bout that! 🙂 three more looks to make!
View E without sash
View E with my DIY infinity scarf…

It came together sooo nicely! so love the A-line look!
