Sunny Day to All,
This past weekend was a busy one for me. It is First Communion season! I was invited to 3 of them this past Sunday. Although I had a full schedule as I was helping with one of them in particular, I was able to squeeze three hours to sew this one up quickly on Saturday. I've been meaning to duplicate this look of MimiG a while back with pattern S8380. This is what sewing is all about, getting inspired and making it happen your own way.That blue gave me life this weekend. Of course, I decided to complete the African look by wrapping my locs with the same fabric. I paired this dress with gold jewelries and my Blue pumps. I can't remember where I got those from. They are old. Ha! Enjoy these few pics!
About the Pattern
Simplicity 8380 was very easy to follow. I will definitely say that as long as one is comfortable with sewing zippers, this will be an easy one. As far as alterations, I replaced the borders with a blue bias tape to accent the blue and also hemmed it the same way. I wear a 6 in regular clothes, so for this pattern, I use the size 12 and added an extra inch on each size to make sure that it would fit. Of course, I had to adjust it to my body. This Ankara fabric does not stretch so if you cut it too small, you will need to cut the piece all over again. I really loved the final look. Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy Sewing to You and don't forget to say hello!
