Since my sewing goals for July & August are to stock up my closet with summer clothes, I warned you Guys that you may see a few repeat patterns. I forgot to mention that I'll be going on vacation for a week and have another Research trip to Alaska at the end of August. So my goal is to crank out some quick and cute clothes.
HERE. This dress isn't as exciting as that one but I liked the bold white floral designs on the black background. This Simplicity pattern is definitely a keeper for me. In the future I want to make a few more maxi dresses as well as some of the other views but I'll wait to I get my hands on the right fabrics. Don't laugh at me, but these maxi dresses are so comfortable I could wear one everyday!!!! The two I have will be great when I go on vacation.
As a side note I included this picture to demonstrate why it's SOOOO important to buy extra fabric when working on a project. It turns out that when I lengthened the bodice pieces on this dress, I accidentally lengthened the back midriff piece instead of the back piece. So I literally had to cut out 4 new pieces. Thank goodness I always (for the most part) buy at least a yard of extra fabric. I ended up using all of it and there were nothing but scraps left over. Hey mistakes happen, I just like to be somewhat prepared for mine:)
