Well Thursday I found out that we would be attending a 70's party for a relative's 40th bday on Saturday. I had the perfect material, but I just had to find the perfect pattern. And I found that in McCalls 5621 . This is the fastest I have ever completed any project. The dress from the wedding took me like a month (due to several fabric & pattern changes). But here are some pics of me in the dress & also my husband in his outfit.
I love this dress & although it worked perfectly for a 70's party, it can totally be paired with different shoes (& minus the "fro") & be wearable.
I'm still here. I've just been catching up on some much needed rest since we made it back from DC. We went up for my favorite cousin's wedding, which was beautiful; and also a much needed time away from my babies. It was great!!! I finished my dress which was M5845. I used a "summer" tweed that I found @ Joanns. It was very easy to make, even 4 a "super" beginner like myself. Here are pictures of it on my 'manni' & on me.
