You nailed it. The dress looks so good on you!

Thank you so much!

I made this Cynthia Rowley pattern with vintage dotted swiss, lined with good 'ol muslin. I had made this pattern before, and because I knew how tricky the straps were, and I was in a time-crunch, I decided to opt out of them and replace them with simple ties. The last one I made fit horribly, so I took a lot of extra time to alter the pattern and it fits wonderfully this time around.

More pictures and words on my blog if you'd like to look! Happy Sewing!

Hello there!

I made this blouse using vintage Advance #9145 (originally styled as a dress) and Amy Butler 'Glow' Voile. I knew I would feel too..."house-wifey" if I made the dress, so I chopped off the skirt and went with a gathered peplum instead.  Vintage zipper in back, finished on the inside with bias tape and french seams. Thank you for reading!

More on my little 'ol blog if you'd like to see/read more.

What a cute top!  Perfect for the summer hot weather!  Love how you picked up the orange in the print with your piping.  Did you use knit bias tape?

Thank you very much! Yes, ma'am I did, orange is my favorite color, so I like to add a little pop of it now and then.

The number is wrong, should be Simplicity 9438. Thank you for the fun top idea.

Ooops! I'll go ahead and fix that. Thanks for the heads up!

I made this great little wrap top a while back with a 1980's Simplicity pattern #9438 and some lightweight vintage polyester. It's easy to wear and I'd love to make another out of cotton. More on my blog if you'd like to look. http://palindromedrygoods.blogspot.com/2015/05/flashback-friday.html

Thanks for reading, happy sewing!

You look really nice in it! It seems very soft and comfortable.

Does it open on the side?

It doesn't. It just has a keyhole opening in the top back. Takes a bit of wiggling to get past my shoulders, honestly!

I made this blouse with 100% silk fabric, and New Look #6286. I don't normally sew with silk, but this project went surprisingly well and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Gotta love that color!

There's more words and pictures at my blog if you'd like to look. Thank you for reading!http://palindromedrygoods.blogspot.com/2015/05/five-six-seven-eight.html

that looks really nice.  Great job.
Is it cut on the grain or bias?

Hello! Thank you! It is cut on the grain, but I considered cutting it on the bias. Perhaps on the next one!
