Wait! There's More

After seeing Adrienne's zebra print dress, Erica B and Gold's interpretation of this pattern and the awesome sale at Hancock, I could ignore the call of the wild no longer, so I whipped this up. In case you missed theirs, this is Simplicity 3503 view E.

After promising my DD and my friend's DD a maxi dress nobody was getting one until I had one, yep I'm really in a selfish mode of sewing these days. My DD said I was going to look like Betty Rubble from the Flintstones, she is such a hater lol.




I only have remnants left of the nude knit tricot so I lined the dress with some other Texas fabric, this is a white stretch knit, I think it was 1.50/yd at Wal-Mart in either Texas or Louisana, we hit both.
I wasn't going to post this picture, I was trying it on for the final fit and had my DS snap this picture, you have to excuse my Sunday hair, I'm going to go work on it so it can be Monday hair.
I really like the way the dress fits but I forgot Erica's review where she said she lengthened the bodice, I should have done that but I'm not taking it out, it will be just fine.

I didn't start the maxi dress that I have cut out because I thought this one would be really quick and it was, start to finish maybe 3 1/2 hours.
Okay, I think that's all the sewing I can fit in today, I got that Sunday hair to work on, the dishes in the sink won't wash themselves and it's not worth fighting with the kids to get them to wash them.
I hope everyone has a great week.
