Made a summer dress M6559 for my favorite girl, my mama!

The famous M6659

    So, I finally got around to making my mama a sundress, the first thing that I have made and had to fit for someone other than myself may I add.. M6559, the dress that everyone and their mama has made, seriously lol! I made this pattern ; however, in a shirt form last year, I believe. This is such a great pattern to learn fitting on others, seeing that the dress has only two pattern pieces to the dress. My mama and sissy came down in March and we were able to do the fitting for the dress, and it only took me two additional months to get it shipped off to Florida lol!
Gone then mommy!

 My mama and I made a trip to Hancock's Fabric, her first time there and she absolutely loved it! We scored this ITY jersey on the clearance aisle, and I believe we paid less than five dollars a yard for this fabric, yass! We did have to alter the pattern slightly to make sure that it fit my mama very womanly curves, I ain't mad at you girl, lol! We used the size 22 pattern and added about 3" to the side seams, raised the neckline about 1", we also stabilized the shoulder seams with clear elastic to ensure that the dress would not grow. Don't you hate when that happens in RTW, ugh!

in the way lol!


  My mama received the dress last week and stated that she absolutely loved it, yass! Her hubby also said that she looked gorgeous, great hubby I tell ya! I will say that I enjoyed the challenge of sewing for someone other than myself, although I don't think it will become second nature anytime soon lol...What can I say I am a selfish seamstress, but I will do anything for my favorite girl aka my mommy!

 Well, lovelies I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and eating all the BBQ and treats that you can eat, or is that me lol! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
