It’s that time of year again, when flowers and weddings are in full bloom. I actually have attended very few weddings myself, which is perhaps why I found myself without anything suitable to wear for the wedding hubby and I are attending today.
In a long story involving dresses that didn’t fit, and a very busy sewing room, I ended up being able to borrow a cute pink dress from a friend. (Thank God for good friends. What would we do without them?) With the cool and rainy weather we were having I knew I might need a jacket to go over the dress, so I headed to the fabric store and purchased New Look 6935.
I used an off-white linen I already had on hand with cotton lining. I made a size 8, and said a little prayer as I cut it out as I didn’t have time for a test run. Luckily, it fits beautifully! And I was very thankful to have it on this cold and rainy day!
The pattern was very easy to follow, and I would definitely make one of these again. I also hope to try the dress someday soon.
I own two classy evening bags, but both are dark velvet and didn’t seem right with this light ensemble, so a quick online search found me this tutorial from Sew, Mama, Sew.
It was quite easy to make, and the only change I made was to make mine with fusible fleece, instead of the layers of interfacing sugeested in the tutorial. It’s the perfect size, and looks nice with the pink dress.
Now I’m dressed and ready to go!
What have you been sewing lately?
