Hello everyone! This was actually the last wedding of this year for me. Sorry, in an earlier post I stated that that was the last, but I promise this is the last. Let me tell you this wedding was a blast and the food was fantastic! It was our good friends Lucy and Josh.
I found this fabric at mood.com and I fell in love with it! It’s a sparkly jersey knit. I love the depth of the shimmer. Depending on the light the fabric looks either black or shades of blue! Below are two different showings of the fabric.
I made this dress based on the McCall’s 6754 pattern. The only thing that I would say about this pattern, is that it was a little too big, I had to take it in a lot, to the point where I should have made about 2 size smaller than I thought. This gave me difficulty in the sleeves because the dress is like a baseball shirt sleeve.
I am really proud of the hem on this and the finishing of the neckline. I really wanted it to be close to perfect as possible, after going through and critiquing my own home made closet, I found that those two things I needed more patience with. I would say that taking just a minute longer really did make it a lot better than my earlier work.
What do you all think?! How many more wedding do you still have left this year?
