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.

Vogue Dress

Vogue 8685
 This fabric was a joy to work with!It's a pontemroma knit that I bought at Hancock Fabrics.
 Since I was using a knit fabric I decided to leave out the back zipper which made this a quick project that I was able to make up in an afternoon.
 I was atracted to this pattern because of the fitted look of the dress around the waist and I was not disappointed I love how it's slims the waist area on me.

The waist and top of the hip area has separate pattern pieces that you sew together then top stitch.The curve piece that attaches to the skirt area  gives a sliming effect to  my hips .I need all the help I can get :) 

Great pattern that I will make again in one of the other views.

 I'm off work today so  I may be able to finished my vogue wrap dress that I have been working on.
Thanks for stopping by hope you all have a good one. Bye Bye
