Sunny Day to All,
I woke up one morning and decided to make a dress that would fit no matter what the outcome was from my medical procedure. I wanted an oversized dress where I could easily hide weight gain or imperfection while I loose the weight. I looked through my pattern and found McCall 7800. This pattern looked fun. The sleeves took the attention away from the actual dress. I had this Polka dot fabric that I purchased from Gstreet fabric. And thought: Perfect!!!!
It was still very nice outside so I paired it with some simple white wedges and my gold and white busy necklace. This is one of the dress that brought a smile to my face while sewing it. This dress has a special place in my heart. Also, I should share that I received plenty of compliment for this oversized dress. Enjoy these few pictures!
About the Pattern
McCall 7800 is definitely a quick pattern. This dress is very simple and the sleeves are super fun to make. I cut size 14 which happened to be loose and oversized. This is an oversized dress. For reference purposes, I usually cut a 14 for the McCall patterns. The instructions were super clear and easy. I used this simple white bias tape to finish the sleeves and thought it was a nice touch to the final look. Happy Sewing to You!
Sunny Day to All,
There is so much I can say about this. But I think the shirt says it all. Plus, it is probably to painful to write about it. So I am going to leave it at that and say a big " Thank you to Tabitha Sewer for creating this shirt. It says it all and it actually makes me feel better just wearing it.
Everyone has that "thing" that make them forget about pain. For some, it's sports, singing, dancing, crafting etc.... For me, dancing and sewing have always been my go to. That has not changed.
Hubby and I went to Great Falls in Virginia for a picnic to spend a couple of hours to bond and talk about everything. It was awesome! The water fall was beautiful as always and the weather was perfect. So we thought, why not snap some pics wearing this shirt that describes how I feel and shout out the amazing sewist that created it.
If sewing has helped you or is helping you heal for any reason, head over to Tabitha Sewer's page to purchase your shirt. I bought this one a while back but she has another design available. Let's support a fellow sewist.
