Seeandsew4957

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!We stayed home and barbecued and watch the neighbors fireworks.


My hubby started a fire ,because it was cold that night!


We were happy he started that fire!!


Then Justin wanted to start his own fire!!


Now to sewing!!

I was at JoAnn's fabric and was passing the see and sew rack and this pattern caught my eye. Well I had already broken my pattern diet for the summer so what's one more pattern. It was only 2.99 and I used my 40% coupon to get it!LOL!






Pattern: See & Sew B4957
Misses' dress and sash: Semi-fitted , sleeveless, flared dress has lined bodice, neckline variations and back zipper closure. Sash has stitched hem.

Notions: 22 inch zipper, Hook and Eyes.

Fabric: cotton I bought from a yard sale. 4 yards for a 1.00$.

Conclusion: Very easy pattern. It only has 5 pattern pieces to make this dress!! And if you make the sash it is 6. From start to finish I think it could take you about 3 to 4 hours or less to make. It took me 4 hours. I used to the same fabric to line the bodice. Super simple dress. I highly recommend this pattern!

Thanks for the blog luv :)
I love your sewing!! I wish I had this talent but I admit that I dont, LOL and the hubby would have a fit if I picked up one more hobby so maybe one day I will get to it. For now I will keep an eye out on the fab ladies that create beautiful dresses.
Have a good one!

Wow! I would not consider that pattern to be very inspiring, but you made it look amazing with the blue print-pink sash combo!
