There’s just something irresistible about Valentines Day…
Every year I’m inspired to make something pink or red, definitely a bit flirty. In January I found this Fiesta Fabrics Petunia Garden rayon/spandex jersey knit at Fabric Mart and fell in love. It’s sold out on Fabric Mart, but Craftsy has it in stock in two colorways. It’s a nice weight for a dress at 8.8 oz and 60% x 60% stretch.
I used ‘my’ version of V1297, a cute dress by Sandra Betzina. The difference between hers and mine is that I did away with the piecing in the front and back. Such a quick sew!
Of course I wore it on Valentines Day – and got compliments!
Here’s a peek at my current project, Vogue 9224, a long tunic with handkerchief hems.
In these two pics, I’m wearing it inside out, the hems are unfinished, and the exposure is lightened so I can see the details better. I find it really helpful to stop and take a couple pics to get an idea of where a new pattern is going…
I’m liking it!!
I’m pumped to finish it today and get some nice photos so I can share.
Bye for now! Coco
