Well, the McCalls 6102 pattern I blogged about in my last post, says it sews in an hour. (Not counting cutting time). So, for the 2nd time around, I cut the pattern, ironed on the facing, and checked the time. Kids and husband were sleeping. I *think* this actually did sew up in an hour!
But while sewing I got a text from a dear friend and we chatted a bit, so my timing was a bit off.
So it was more than an hour if you stop to chat!
Anyway, check me out!
The fabric is a Marc Jacobs cotton print I picked up at Mood in NYC. Actually I bought the print in grey, brought it home, realized how much I loved it, then called Mood to buy the other colors! This kind of taupe and pink print was not one that caught me eye as much in the store. But I think it works for this dress. It's nice and light and loose and comfy and cool for the hot Georgia sun.
This time I didn't make a belt and will just wear as is. It's a little boxy, so not the most figure flattering as is, but it sure is comfy. Comfy wins.
I also have this print in blue and purple! I think it's rather retro!
And just because, here's a little collage of my peeps. I am a lucky lady.
