Art & Drama by Day


I needed a break from my designs recently and I love playing with store patterns so I made myself this cool dress.  For those of you who sew, I used Vogue 1482 (V1482).  It was super simple and fun to follow - just took a couple hours.  I

 made a couple changes too, mainly turning the neckline into a deep plunging V.  The v-neck took a much more modest artsy/work attire look to an artsy/happy hour look.  It's loungy, it's sexy and it's a bit dressy.  More interestingly to me though, is it's a bit different with its shape and diagonal pocket.


 The boots were a good answer for this particular dress.  I also wore them in a more Wintry ensemble here.  I'm excited to try this dress though with a pair of strappy sandals.  Ooo, and a body chain. 




So, if you sew, give this pattern a try.  I had a lot of fun with it and was able to put it on and go.  My favoritest thing to do!

Have a simple and easy Monday!  See ya back here on Thursday :) 
I'll be back to my own designs and tricks.

    1. Hey Shon! I think this particular pattern looks flattering on everyone. It'd be fun to do it in a knit or print. I hate being stuck at the machine, that's why I always have to change up what I'm working on. Thanks for the compliment! Happy Spring to you and your fam!
