Valentine's dress V8742 and Happy 30th to me!!!!


So, I finished my Valentine's dress in time to wear with my three Valentine's! My hubby and our two boys.. My husband really made sure that I had a great evening, so kudos to the hubby... I really was not even sure if I was going to get the dress finished in time, seeing that I didn't start on the dress until Monday the day before V-day!

Paired here with V8679 jacket!

I sewed the dress all the up eliminating the hook and eye and bias binding!

 However, this dress is a breeze to sew! Especially, once I eliminated the bias binding at the neck and "steam a seamed those hems".. Can we say it together*winning*! This dress is easy to wear, and I love the side ruching in this dress it makes for a very figure flattering shape... There's really not much to review on this dress, it's simply that simple! I used a ponte knit from fabric mart fabrics and I sewed a size 18 but cut 2" off the hip so I could have used a 16 in hindsight...

 Overall I had a great Valentine's day with the hubby and my boys and glad that I was able to wear my new dress to dinner last night! Well today is my 30th! Thank you Jesus for another year, so I plan to take it easy today and relax!  Be blessed Divas and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  8. First of all you MADE ME buy your vogue dress pattern today. I had been scared of the side ruching, but yours looks so good that I am now temped to make one up.

    About getting around to the leggins. I know - right? I have so many sewing ideas floating around in my head that sometimes it actually makes me a little dizzy. I just cannot get around to everything I want to make!!!

    Hurry up and get to Texas and get settled. I think I feel another dress sew-a-long coming on for the summer and it won't be right if you're not involved!

  9. Thanks again ladies! You ladies are the best!
