Today my mom and I (along with the girls) went up to Nashville to my FAVORITE fabric store, Textile Fabrics.
They had their annual 1/2 off sale. OMG....We got SO much good stuff. I'll show all of that later on but I am SO...SO...SO...SO...SO ready for fall sewing. You have NO idea lol. I got my new BWOF today and I haven't even opened it.Not even wanting to LOOK at summer stuff lol.
Look at my girls...they were SO sleepy lol
They kept their hair tied up so it wouldn't mess up...no field trip is complete without a blanket lol.
I didn't take any pics of fabric or video or any of that stuff this time. I was on a MISSION lol. I did get pics of the girls in the crown lol
Do y'all notice the colors that Kayla is wearing?!?! I'm just saying lol....
Yes, Jaelyn loved the crown lol.
I also picked up the latest edition of Threads. I REALLY like this magazine.
I was able to get some knitting done on the way up....
When I make a little more progress I'll show you guys what it is SUPPOSED to be lol.
Pattern Review Vogue 8472
Lined dress has front princess seams, gathered front, back darts, gathered A-line skirt, back zipper and contrast midriff, bodice side and bodice back. Length is mid-knee.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the pattern ok. I didn't like the panel in the front once I finished the dress. I just think I picked the wrong fabric for it. It was too stiff.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't think I will sew it again. The pattern was easy enough, I just think my fabric choice was wrong. Maybe it will grow on me...Right now it's just kinda blah.
Ok that's it for me today!
