I punted!

Or no I did not wear the black wool crepe version of Simplicity 3631 to the Holiday Party...

See it was like this...I was suppose to be sewin' this weekend...instead I read a book, took a nap, cleaned my room...and finally sat down to sew on Sunday evening. By this time I had already decided that I had plenty of garments that I could wear instead of the dress so this is where I left it...


BTW, it works really great with the Simplicity 3631 jacket I previously made and with the Jackie O retro black/white jacket. And I love the black pleather detailing...I also added the darts back into the skirt front as they are in the original pattern. I couldn't make the exact same dress as the tan one could I?

So what did I wear instead? Why my black Tamoutsu dress from my Timmel SWAP entry with the reversible dress underneath it.


I looked quite nice without the pressure of rushing a dress through...so I will finish the black version up sometime soon because it's now time to make pjs for Christmas gifts!

  9. And you needed a new dress, why? When this outfit is fabulous on you? Of course, don't we sewers always want to make a new outfit for every event?
    This is a great dress. I will have to go back and see the post for it.

  10. Carolyn, you look great in all the outfits. When I clicked back to the tan dress entry I noticed the great Chanel style shoes you were wearing. Where did you get those? I'm actually assuming they are knock offs due to the fact that Chanel shoes run in the $500 range!
