I did all of this sewing in February, but never got around to posting about it. Such is my life of late.
This was a lightweight pink velour, so I decided its best use would be sleeveless dresses with a matching jacket. I had 4 yards of it, so there would be plenty of potential uses.
First up: My favorite summer princess seamed dress, with a bolero jacket from a pattern I got in 1981. I love this jacket; it's nicely fitted and feminine, without being too formal or fussy. I copied the dress from one I bought in the late 1980s, and wore until it fell apart.
Second: an a-lined, spaghetti strapped dress, also a summer favorite. I didn't get any decent pictures while standing; I guess taking pictures at 1AM when I'm tired isn't such a great idea, right?
This is the V1250 with the jacket. Just what I need for winter wear.
Note that this pink is actually the color of cotton candy. My dearly beloved commented to me that while I have lots of pink dresses, I didn't have any quite like this, a bright yet pale shade. He liked it. Note to self: he likes pink. Wear pink.
I have another velour dress cut out, but the weather has turned warm, and I'm not motivated to finish it. *sigh*
Hope you've all had a great weekend! Ours has been sunny and warm, which is always welcome a couple of days after a snowstorm!
