I'm home in my very cool (vs. the very hot temps outdoors) basement sewing room contemplating my next sewing move. I have a list of projects for July including a really big one, but today I'm feeling like something quick and easy. I have a load of new knits sitting on my cutting table and I really just want a dress that I can cut and sew.
So inspired by Cennetta's latest version of Vogue 1250, I've pulled out my copy to make me another one (my 7th!!!) from this fabric:
...and maybe even a quick maxi with another knit from McCalls 6559...I don't know but whatever I make this weekend will be quick and easy since the Trendy Lace Dress took way more time and energy than I imagined or planned for. BTW, it's finished, I just need to wait for my daughter to show up to take a few pictures...so it's quick and easy for me this weekend...especially since I have to work on Sunday. Yes, I know, working on Sunday and a lot of hours in the next two weeks so complicated is just not going to work for me sewing-wise right now.
There were a few questions I wanted to answer...
Karen asked, "if I had plans to make a striped version of the Peyton dress?"
...and yes of course I do! The dress is a breeze to make and wears wonderfully, so yes expect a striped one.
And another question about the Peyton's construction from Annie, who asked, "whether I used interfacing when I interlined my Peyton Dress?"
First, I underlined not interlined the dress. There is no lining added to the dresses I underlined. Second, there is no interfacing in the dresses. I used medium weight fabrics and there were no areas in the dresses that needed the support that interfacing adds. Hope this helps you in making your own Peyton dress!
So I'm off to sew...and hopefully have another dress or two...
...as always, more later!
