I've been on a sewing spree for 2 months, all my DD's summer outfits, 4 shirts for my DS, one shirt for DH and 3 dresses and a new shirt for myself.  Mainly in preparation for the 10 days we will be in L.A for a wedding.  Alot of work in 2 months, this is normally stuff I would do over the course of the summer.  I had it planned out so that about 1 week before we left I would be done and would have some time to rest a little and get the house in order, you know how it goes.  

Then I got the invite to the bachelorette party.  Bridesmaid's must wear red outfits!  Who thinks up these things  Huh  Well I didn't make a red dress, I made a purple dress, a black and white dress and a bright colorful daisy dress.  I have no red in my closet because I don't wear red normally.  I'm short and chunky which means shopping is difficult when I'm not under constraints, so what's a girl to do.......make a trip to Jo-ann's.  I already had Vintage Vogue 2961, so I just needed the mats, and $30 later had what I needed.  I revamped this pattern, I closed the front, trust me it's a very fitted bodice, for a 40 DD I made the right choice.  I put a zipper in the back, ditched the lower 2 button detail on the skirt, spacing out 6 buttons on top rather than just 4.  Oh yeah ditched the belt on the outside and inside.  It was kind of a fussy type of pattern, but I took the bodice part slow and it turned out really nice.

C&C welcome.

P.S to the ladies who posted in my WWYD thread, thanks for all the advise  Grin

It turned out really nice- great fabric choices.

In the end, only kindness matters.

Beautiful!  I'm really loving the straps - I've never seen anything quite like them before  Smiley

They were interesting to put on.  But they give the dress a different look.
