I know. Can I make anything that’s not a dress?? Lately, it doesn’t appear so. Although, I bought some awesome knits today and have some shirts in the works. But, what can I say, I loooove dresses in the Summer!
I made this one last week and wore it to church and most of the day on Sunday.
I used Simplicity 2177 and it’s a winner, I will likely make it again. Very comfortable and I really like the narrower cut of the shoulders.
The triangular detail on the bodice is pretty cool. Here’s a close-up of mine, but I think it would be extra cool in a stripe!
Because I’ve been making so many clothes lately, I’ve discovered some great clothing-sewing sites that I want to pass along to you!
- Patternreview.com I know this one’s been around for a long time, but I only recently discovered its value. Whenever I embark on a project, I can first read and see pics of what other people have made with a pattern. Great resource
- Fake it While you Make it This gal’s blog has some great show-and-tell clothing projects! I’ve been inspired by her creations a several times.
- Green Apples This lovely lady makes some beautiful things, mostly dresses. See, I’m not the only one 😉
- Idle Fancy I literally just discovered this blog today, but I can’t wait to explore some more!
