I made this little number for my upcoming cruise I'm taking. I used one of Vogue's "Very Easy" patterns to make it. I picked up blue suede fabric from the local discount fabric store in Normal Heights in San Diego. I paid less than $16 bucks including the fabric, zipper, and tax. Can't beat that!

I love the dress. It is so pretty. Could you tell me where you got the belt in the first picture? Thanks

pjw3362004 - I purchased the belt for $12.00 at a store called Mileage. They sell mostly accessories, with some women's club wear. If you live in San Diego, you can find them on Garnet Street in Pacific Beach. I hope that helps.

another simple dress but with fabulous fabric!

looks great--very flattering and fun--you will be the life of the party on the cruise!

Just one question: is the hem done by machine? I find that it is difficult to get a nice invisible hem on suede cloth...it is the one thing I am not fond of when using this type of fabric.

Thank you for the fast reply. I'm in NC. I've never been west of KY maybe one day.

The Vogue pattern was for a larger, visible hem, so I did use my Bernina. Although, now I am curious about if I could use my blind hem attachment on my serger. I may have to try it out, now. I'll keep you posted.
