This is just a glimpse into my fabric stash .
I absolutely love the fact that in Philadelphia we have so many discount fabric stores.

Dress # 6

I had extra fabric left over from dress #5 so I made this lovely skirt I used Newlook 6977
Don't you just love when that happens?  I bought three yards of fabric for $2.99 a yd so for $9.00 I
have a dress and a skirt.

Dress # 6

I used the same pattern as dress #5 simplicity 3673.
I wanted to make this dress over in a solid color so you can see all the details in the dress, I added three
pleats to the bodice front because for some reason it was really roomy.
I did'nt measure properly.  That's the reason. I must say I really like the way this dress fits.

Please excuse the wrinkels.

Dress # 5

I finally crossed over into the Retro world and I'm loving it. I have been a fan of sew retro for such a long time. I really like the way this dress fits. I used a Cotton fabric with a little stretch to it.  I'm not a big fan of lining so I used bias tape around arms.

Dress # 4

I'm on a roll now. Just completed dress #4. I really like the way this dress turned out. This Vogue pattern 7709 from the easy collection was very easy to make. When I first started sewing everyone I know that sews warned me to stay away from Vogue patterns they said they were very complicated I haven't found them that complicated yet.

Dress #3

Hay everyone I'm on a roll now. I Just completed dress #3 getting all ready for spring and summer mentally I'm already there.

 I really like the way way this dress turned out. I didn't use a lining so I had to alter the bodice.

Dress #2

I haven't posted anything in a while. I have to get use to sewing and blogging at the same time.
I have had plenty of time to sew with this harsh winter we've been experiencing. So I'm  kinda dissapointed that I dont have more garments to display. The snow is finally melting. Thank GOD.
