Second project down for the ThReD and Needles sewing group…THE WRAP DRESS…
I have made a few wrap dresses in the past, but for this round I wanted to make one using a mixture of knit and woven. I used McCalls M7185 View D HERE.
I used fabric from my stash for the entire dress. I purchased the cotton sateen in the waistband and skirt from Joann’s fabric about a year ago. How fab are the following fabric options HERE, HERE (go to http://www.gorgeousfabrics.com….and get 10% discount when you use the code ReDPants) HERE, HERE? The top portion of the dress was made using a neoprene fabric purchased from Hancock Fabrics (similar HERE).
DRESS: DIY McCalls M7185 | SHOES: BCBG Max Azria | NECKLACES and CLUTCH: Charming Charlie
Next project is the DENIM JEAN…
I recently purchased fabric for this project. This will be my first time making my own denim jeans. I purchased three different weights to test and play with. Here are the three fabrics that I plan on using:
I really want to make a dark pair of denim jeans. Although, I think that that the Sky Blue might be cool mixed with one of the darker denims. I don’t know…I may need to play with this one…just thinking. I chose fabrics with a stretch because I think that either one of them will have a great fit. Here are links to the fabrics that I chose HERE, HERE, HERE. Their entire stock of denim is 15% off starting October 5th…ONE DAY ONLY…click HERE for more details. Can’t wait for it to arrive!!!
Ok…so I am pulling out a pattern from my archives for the denim project this month! I have had this pattern in my stash for a looooonnnnggg time Vogue V2973! I cut the pattern with plans to make the jacket and never made it. Now I need to make the pants! I think that this one might be the one for me??? (The pattern is out of print.) If I have time, I want to add the Ginger jean pattern HERE to my list, too!
What do you think? Should I try this pattern for the denim challenge?
