Sunny Day to All,
Last Friday, my husband and I traveled to Cancun, Mexico to attend our cousin's wedding. I decided to sew this dress to wear for the rehearsal dinner. I made it on Thursday night before we left. I used two different patterns. I wanted my shoulders out and wanted a split bottom so Simplicity 1613 was perfect for the top and McCall 6744 was great for the bottom.
We stayed at the beautiful Hard Rock Hotel in Cancun. I had my hair done by the greatest stylist Cyndy Dumay before I left Maryland. Of Course I enjoyed my cabernet all weekend long :-). I paired my beautiful dress with some lime green exotic jewelry and my white sandals. I got this beautiful fabric from Michael Levine when I went to LA in October for my birthday.
About the Pattern
I already had a look in mind for this fabric and to accomplish this look, I had to use two patterns. The off the shoulder top was easy to make using view D of Simplicity 1613. I then cut the medium size of the bottom part of McCall 6744 view D. I am getting very comfortable with my machine and my sewing. I thought this was very easy to sew. It took me three hours to finish this beautiful dress and I was very happy with the outcome. I used elastics for both the shoulders and the waist. Looking for an easy combination? Well this is it! Happy sewing to You!
