What "New Look" are you rockin’?

Good afternoon y’all!…I’m sitting here watching my huny play Grand Theft Auto 5 and he just got “killed” for flying over a military base! LOL!…I’m going to make a “swear jar”; with one play session I’ll have enough money to get myself some new fabric!….He loves these games though, although you can’t exactly tell by listening to him play!…
The sewing bug was biting pretty hard yesterday and was also whispering that I should start sewing for the season change….Now I always sew things that are for the season per say but I don’t always use the designated “Fall colors”….Now it gets cool around here for sure (today is in the high 70’s/low 80’s) and there is a need for layering…but I NEVER feel a need to wear dull colors….I love all colors; the Pantone colors for Fall are beautiful but if I want to wear bright Orange or Yellow smack dab in the middle of Winter time, then I definitely will….The sun usually shines although the air may be crisp and I take full advantage….I get depressed when the sun doesn’t shine and my colorful clothes keep my spirits up…
Now this dress is from a pattern I’ve made before; just a different view…its New Look Pattern # 0167…..This is View B….I love the neckline; there is no collar on this view….I used a fabric I’ve had in my stash since last year some time and I got it from ——>HANCOCK’S FABRICS!…I friggin’ love that place….It’s kinda slinky, but it was super easy to work with….it was the perfect choice for this dress….I omitted the kick pleat in the back; I just didn’t want it….I wanted the focus on this pretty hounds tooth fabric….the colors I guess are “Fall” like although I didn’t plan it that way….The berry color my new dress has also matches one of the Pantone colors for Fall 2013; the one they dubbed “Vivacious”….I will be just that when I rock this dress;  mos’ def…..
I have successfully mastered the invisible zipper and it shows on this dress…the neckline is fire too…I had a little trouble with the set-in sleeves but I fixed it right up….sleeves have proven easy to fix unlike other things….
I’ll be pairing this dress with heels and boots and I anticipate a lot of wear out of this dress!…I loves and loves me some hounds tooth….
I’ll share my pictures now, and talk to you good people a little later!

purty dress!

Sa-weeeet neckline….

invisible zipper?…piece a’ cake!

 New Look is always looking good! 😉

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!
