DKNY Vogue Patterns V1488 Tie Front Shirtdress

I bought up a bunch of DKNY Donna Karan for Vogue Patterns before they went out of print and have had this tie front shirtdress (V1488) on my “to make” list for about a year now.   I was surprised how much I like this on me.  The fit still needs a few tweaks but I love the style lines and the wrap tie in the front is …

Paco Peralta Tunic Vogue 1550

I’m always a bit hesitant making patterns that are voluminous but this Paco Peralta Tunic, Vogue 1550, is a stunner!  I wanted something sheer and lightweight for summer and this fits the bill perfectly.  I’ve been wearing this with leggings quite a bit.  It’s artsy and elegant but still comfortable out playing with the kids or out for the weekend.

Dior Grey Badgley Mischka V1460

I’ve been sewing up a storm over here!  A little bit of sewing escapism was needed this past week(s).  I finished off a pair of Morgan jeans, a super cute set of Carolyn pj’s and two handbags/backpacks!  This dress I’m showing off today was finished before the new year but getting some decent pictures required more effort.  Here’s my Badgley Mischa for Vogue Patterns dress V1460 in a Dior …
