Sunny Day to All,
OH MY!!! It has been a minute! I thought I was going to sew an entire collection this summer. I bought so many fabrics. I was ready, but life had another plan for me. I had two unexpected deaths in the family. Two great souls that have been around me all my life past away without warning. There is not much to say other than, my summer sewing plans went down the drain. Every time I tried to sew, I could not get it together. It just felt like I needed some time so I did just that. I took some time off from sewing and boy, do I miss it! So, I'm back with this beautiful mini dress.
I have a lot of Ankara/African fabric so I thought, why not make a come back with this beautiful green sunny dress that I made a couple of months ago. I used Simplicity 8264 to achieve this look and I love the final look. I paired it with orange custom jewelry, my nude heels and my new gold and white shades. Enjoy these few pics!
About the Pattern
Simplicity 8264 was pretty easy and straight forward. If you are comfortable with zippers, this is a beginner pattern. I cut a size 12. I only made 2 alterations to this dress. I made the neck ruffle shorter and I also made the actual dress shorter. You guys know I'm only 5 feet tall so I always have to cut my patterns shorter. I will definitely sew this Cynthia Rowley Simplicity pattern again using a thicker/heavier material for the fall or winter. It feels good to be back! Happy Sewing to You!!!
