I am finally caught up with my sewing posts and have completed my July MAGAM Challenge just in the nick of time! Here is it - Vogue 8553.
I've made this dress before and it's a fairly simple sew. I had enough fabric this time to make the belt too. But you know what? I don't think I really like it.
Is it the color or the fact that I've gained 10 pounds and need to lose them?
I don't know. Maybe it's the belt? I like the first one I made - it's in a dark burgundy print but I didn't have enough yardage to make the belt for that one. I'll give it a wear tomorrow and see. It might just end up in the donate pile.
Anyways, I'm still counting the fabric I used as it was from the stash. Here are my current stats:
Yardage for this dress = 2.625
YTD yardage: 40.41 yards
That's it for me today!
Happy sewing everyone!
