Woo hoo! I have two family graduations to attend this year! My son AND my husband! Yay! One is starting out and one is moving on up! So, you know I had to make a special something something. Can’t be walking in the special ceremony with an ‘old faithful’.
I already had it planned to be made anyways. M6700 Fashion Star pattern is a winner! The fabric is from the stash, of course, since I am also participating in the 2013 Style the Stash Sew A Long.
It is described as ‘Easy’ and ‘Knit’. Misses’ dress and belt. It suggests to have Jersey, Interlock, or Cotton Knit. I used a very pretty black slinky but very substantial knit. Notice I didn’t say what it was. It’s because I don’t remember. That’s why I need to make a fabric book. That’s a goal when I buy new fabric in the future.
I used 2 yards and I cut the 14. It comes in 8 to 24 and yields itself beautifully to any size. So there’s no reason for you to say you won’t look good in it. Yes, you will!
The directions were good. The only part that confused me were the strap construction to the shoulder seams. A little unnecessary fiddling. I did things my way and it worked great.
Fresh of the machine:
I want to wear my red t-strap heels but I don’t have red jewelry. What do you suggest?
Chime in and let me know.
