Now that the weather is finally changing in Dallas.
It's time to start sewing for Fall and Winter. I'm really enjoying the cool nights with our window open and feeling the nights breeze. That got me to thinking, dresses I don't have any long sleeves dresses.
I picked up 2 yards of this medium weight gray knit from, you guessed it Wally World for $5.47 a yard. I also have a swing jacket and dress I made last year from this material.
I made these 2 years ago and still have yet to wear the dress, but I promise this year she will be worn.
Just click the link and it will take you directly to the garments.
I didn't use a pattern.
I simply traced a dress I loved.
Then I used a sleeve for the McCall's 6797 pattern for the sleeves.
Sides all sewn up of the dress and added the sleeves.
I also used the neckband from the same McCall's 6797.
It came out great..

Another view of side sleeve.
It took about an hour and a half from start to finish. I didn't rush on this project and I even reinforced the sides due to my growing belly.
Excuse the awkwardness of the belly.
I tried, LOL..
Another awkward moment..
It's too low, need to lift it up..
That's a little better.
This is how I'll be wearing the dress.
