Butterick 5985

I really love this pattern, so much so that I made it twice. This is the first time. I used a knit fabric that I purchased online I think at Since it was a knit I eliminated the lining and used bias tape for the finishing. I also went sans zipper. I used the second flounce pattern only and just fused the hem.

I think this pattern would look on everybody, can you imagine it on Mimi G?

Another Vogue 8723

This dress was cut out last summer and I finally got to it this summer. This fabric is older than most of the sewing bloggers out there! I got it at the old Minnesota Fabrics (now Hancock). I really like this pattern, it's easy and has simple design lines.

I was going to show off my maxi skirt today also, but I think I forgot to take my cute pill or my photographer was having a hard some other day. One thing funny about this dress is that unbeknownst to me my husband wore orange today too. Don't you hate it when couples wear coordinating outfits? The other day we both wore bright green...YIKES!
