I moved to Dallas last year from San Francisco last year & it is HOT.  Not just hot but the kind of humid where you want your clothes to breath.  So, Hancocks was having a great sale today & I got several patterns & fabrics to make some sundresses, which I am seriously lacking.

I am starting with this one:

But I also got this one:

And this one:

And this one:

Anyone want to join along?

Me! Me! I've made one already, just a pillowcase type, but I've got some cool patterns too! I might make one tonight!

I do!  I like the McCall's with the bow thing in the front the most though....  AND I live in Dallas.  Thanks goodness it finally rained to cool it off here!

I think I'm in.  I'll be doing the plus sized sundress.

Of course, I've never sewn anything with a pattern before, so we will see how it goes...

I'm in  Wink

I have got the pattern printed & cut out for the 2005 Watanabe dress (on showstudio website).  I am in Aus too, but at least that gives me 3 months to make sure it is finished for when it does start to warm up.

off to go and cut the fabric for the skirt part - have not decided what to use for the top part

All right!  I have 4 in progress - just need to add the zipper, top facing, and hem.  Same pattern, just different variations & fabrics.  How's everyone else doing?

Summer came early here - can't wait to have these done!

Only working on the one dress - was going to make the top part out of a green slk fabric, but as I was a bit unsure how the pattern pieces fit together & it would fit.

Either I managed to print it on a slightly smaller scale, put it together incorrectly (but I'm sure I have not), or the models they use are thinner than a rake  - either way I have had to add a 2 panels to the back (which still fits nicely in with the design).

That is the part I am up to  - the zip & straps need to be added, a couple of minor finishing bits, and I think it will be done.  Grin

I have another pattern (for a dress) which I think I will work on before I have another go at this dress which I will alter differently to fit.
