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!
