That's so 70's

I made this little wrap dress last week. I bought the fabric at Joann's Fabrics it's a Polly with some
crosswise stretch. The wrap style with this colourful fabric reminds me of something from the 70's.

I love Vogue patterns they have those extra little details even on a knit dress.This one had  pleating at the shoulder darts in the back and sleeves  This gives the dress a little more shape.

This is an easy pattern to sew with nice results I have already cut out another one in the sleeveless version .

I have so many projects in my head right now that I don't know where to start. I always seem to plan and start way to many projects. For instance I have four different cardis that I have been knitting for this past year and instead of doing the sensible thing and finishing one of them I decide to start a new knitting project. Is this just me or is anyone else out there with to  many ideas and projects going that you ended up feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to start?

The Grand kids are coming to stay with us this weekend and the weather here in KY is going to be warm and sunny  so I'm sure we will be spending most of our weekend outdoors. I may get a wee bit of sewing done but it won't be much.
Thanks for stopping by
 Hope you all have a great weekend.


  1. Beautiful dress and the colors in the fabric are the colors of spring/summer 2011. Yes you are not the only one with tons of projects in your head. My goal for this year is to finish all my UFO's and so far I am off to a good start.

  2. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I really love that dress and the fabric is gorgeous!! I know what you mean about projects--I have a notebook's page worth and I don't know which one to do next.

  3. Pretty dress and love the colorway. I have 2 crochet UFOs, and 2 dresses cut and a top... so you are not alone.
