Dresses and more Dresses

I've been really into sewing dresses lately.  I love dresses in the summer.  They are easy to wear to work, just toss on, and more comfortable than pants.  I can toss on some sandels, an easy dress and some earrings and I'm all dressed up and ready to go....

I made Vogue 1160 again, and probably the last time. But sewing with cotton and silk voille is so much fun and so soft.  


not sure where I'll wear it, but I'm sure when summer does arrive, I'll find somewhere.



I also made this dress from some vintage cir. 1960's fabric. It's much cuter in person as it does look a bit drab in the photo.  






























but it's a nice lightweight cotton rayon blend and it has some dark cross threads that give it a nice textured look.   This is Vogue 1152 which I also previously made, but this time I raised the neckline 4" and took in the back (see the gathers) more ..


I have 2 more dresses cut and ready to sew - hopefully this weekend!

Here's a collage of the dresses these past 2 months
