It also helps that I'm beginning the new year with a few new 'toys' in my sewing room that will really help me speed up what I do... all those French seams get quite time consuming after a while! With my new Janome serger and my new professional dress form I am so excited to dig into 2016's sewing.
This is the first outfit I completed so far. I had purchased this Cloud 9 fabric from their Morning Song line a while ago but did not quite know what I wanted to do with it. I ended up using the Butterick 6090 pattern and thought it was a pretty good pattern. I did delete some steps in the instructions because I did not find them necessary but overall, this was a very simple dress to construct.
Plenty of chances to pleat in this pattern... and I still love me some box pleats!
Anyhow, I think I set myself up for a good beginning. Pretty print, easy project and success. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and that your own 2016 gets off to a great start. Heaven knows the world could all use a better year than 2015!
Until next time!
