A New Dress & a little more...

The sewing room has been getting some lovely attention. For instance, take a look at this new little number, which boasts comfy knit fabric and loose lines. The shape easily dresses up with a black belt, (thank you closet), and some heels. Even better, it was quite simple to make!

Except for one little section.... I had a difficult time understanding it. And that would be picture #8 below. The pattern's method leaves a little bump where the back piece meets the shoulder seam. I did a make shift fix, I admit, wrongly, by just snipping away the excess and folding it under. In the end, I still ended up with a cute simple dress and something I've added to my warm weather wardrobe, (if the warm weather ever comes), and with less of a bump.

Some things I'm looking forward too....

A new passion, thrift store scarves. My oh my, I could feel myself going overboard. The projects one could do with these dollar finds! I can't wait to start some scarf skirts. 
These are just a handful of pieces that inspire:)

And... some delightful make-up bags ~ plus.... is that tulle in blush pink?  It sure is, and Pinterest has me all a glow for pleated skirts for the girls. For this one, I'll be winging it. Wish me luck!

Happy Stitching!
