Shortly after I decided to plan and sew an anniversary dress that featured design elements of my wedding dress, McCalls had a clearance/out-of-print pattern sale.
I really wanted a pattern with an illusion neckline to allude to the sheer sleeves of my wedding dress. Here is what I bought.
I love the bodice shaping on this dress. But the bow thing is so weird. I have yet to see a version online where they added the bow. Most omit it. I would too.
This one is okay. The bodice doesn’t have the detail of the other. I might make it for another project. I just think I’m pretty sold on the first one for the anniversary dress project.
This grouping I chose in my quest to make more knitwear, and cropped trousers, and another elusive “every day dress”.
These patterns are the result of hubby and I researching vacation destinations for our 20th anniversary next year. I think we are sold on Iceland. No, not Ireland.
Anyway as soon I am start planning a trip I start planning my wardrobe. These seem like outfits I could sew and wear in Iceland.
Do you plan your sewing in advance? Or on a whim? Or a mix, like me?
Spending the next couple days in San Francisco! Loving the weather!
