Black and White Sundress

Orange juice made using my awesome Silex Juice-it, in my cute mug from the estate sale. Oh, plus a little vodka; let's be real here, it's the weekend.

Tomorrow it will be sunnier, so I will take a picture of me wearing the dress. I am mostly happy with it. I made all the notes (changes on a post-it) I made from the first time I made it- too bad I stopped doing that. It's not like I can remember anything for more than 15 minutes! Lol! Next time however, I will make a facing for the bodice. I dislike the bias binding. I cut off the 5 inches Molly-from-last-summer suggested and it's still below my knee. That's probably because I lazied out and hemmed it on the machine. Pish posh!
I don't know about anyone else, but I am sick of sewing from patterns. I need a challenge! So, I have decided to draft myself a pattern for the perfect sweetheart neckline strapless dress.

Like the yellow part of Drew Barrymore's awesome dress.
or, this Michael Kors dress. I like the cheetah print lace.
That will be my goal for the weekend- we'll see how it goes!

Wish me luck!

P.S. I have done this before- see here (copy of a designer dress) and here (marie antoinette halloween costume)


  1. Well it looks like the juicer works just fine! The dress turned out to be beautiful, the change in the fabric makes it look dressier than a sundress. I can't wait to see it on you!Good luck with the pattern making, you've done it before so it will be easier the second time. I have a box ready to send you and I decided to send you all three of my 'Threads' magazines each one has some good features and I know you'll be interested. : )

  2. Ooo, I love this new sundress! I bet it looks fab on you!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
