Of course, I spent an hour with Sara and QVC while I finished up my Vogue Jacket yesterday evening. She didn't disappoint, showing quality, wearable, chic pieces during her hour...and as you might expect several of her pieces sold out. During the course of the hour she showed two dresses - one your basic u-neck, sleeveless dress with an a-line skirt and this amazing short sleeve floral dress made from cotton lawn...you know I'm now on the hunt for a great cotton lawn...something that doesn't look like a little girl's dress.
However, it was her basic sleeveless dress that inspired my next project - Butterick 5147. I have been looking for just the right piece of fabric to make the jacket in this pattern, 'cause believe it or not I have nothing spectacular for spring...fall/winter probably but not for spring! Anyway, as I watched the show I realized that the SC dress was similar to the Butterick one and I have several pieces of fabric that would make up perfectly in this dress.
So a simple basic dress from a nice silk/linen blend is up next! See, I am trying to sew with patterns other than my TNT patterns!!!
