McCall's 3733

 Another dress that I really love and it's like wearing a nightgown, couldn't be because it's made from flannel, ha! I saw this on sale at Joann's this winter for about four dollars a yard. The colors were so vibrant that I had to get a few yards of this and some tie-dye flannel as well. No problems with the fit, just adjusted the upper arms on the sleeves and everything else was spot on.

 My mom made her mother of the bride dress from this pattern (for my brother's wedding). She used a beautiful brocade fabric and still has the dress. And my brother is still married after all these years to his wonderful wife.

 Got a few compliments when I wore this and that is always nice.

This would make a really cut summer dress.

I'm lazy when it comes to sewing, so instead of tracing out the Burda pattern from last year, I used my new favorite skirt pattern and a vintage pattern for the top. Shock and amazement when the top and bottom fit together perfectly with no measuring! I also like the armhole fit on older patterns, normally I get that front gaping.

 This is a lightweight corduroy and I wore this on Monday, brr. The fabric was from the stash.

 Way behind in blogging, but the weather has been really strange, wanted to finish up some winter things and went to Arizona. But anyway...I really love this pattern. It is "vintage" and it has four neckline variations and comes in my perfect size, 18.5.

 The fabric was purchased at JoAnn Fabrics. I thought it might be hard to handle, but not so.

Instead of the cuffs, I used metallic elastic, fast and easy.
