Another Simple Dress

McCall's 5890
The first time I saw this fabric, I didn't buy it. But, it wouldn't disappear from my memory, so the next time I was at Joann's (and it was on sale), I had to buy it. When I saw Sharon's version of this pattern, I realized that I already had it and the perfect fabric for the job!

Here's my review. I'm really pleased with it, and wish I had a red belt instead of my black (boring) one. Hey Dawn, can I borrow your Obi belt? Super comfy, but dressed up, and so easy to make and wear. I "highly recommend" this one! This particular print hid all the seams (princess seams in front and back), and I thought that was pretty ingenious on my part... ha, ha!


Happy 4th of July!
DH is working at the Fire Station today, so the kiddos and I are going to visit a couple BBQs later on. The July BWOF finally arrived yesterday, so today is tracing day, if not more! I got a couple days headstart on Dawn since she's on vacation this weekend, but she warned me... (and I quote) "Monday, it's on!!!" Oooh, Dawn... I'm so scared... Can you see me shakin' in my boots? I'm pretty sure the halter is going to be my first piece, the wrap around back is so unique!

Then I'll do the wrap dress for Little Miss Princess with that Black and Pink fabric she picked out on our last vacation. I'd really like to use the flower designs that Dawn used in this blog post, but I don't know where she got them from!? Anyone know? I checked Urban Threads, but didn't see it...

Hi Kristine,
The flower design came from Embroidery Library...here's the link: http://www.emblibrary.com/EL/SimpleProduct.aspx?CS_ProductID=Y2929&CS_Category=&CS_Catalog=Emblibrary They have a lot of cute floral appliques. Have a happy 4th and hope your husband stays safe! My husband's a fireman too, but he's off today...he works "A" shift!

Nice dress! I love the print! I agree...you need dawn's red belt, it would be a perfect compliment to your necklace....and her new red shoes!!

Great summer dress, Kristine! Enjoy your holiday. Know that I am watching this race between you and Dawn very intently. LOL!

What a great dress, the clean lines are a perfect way to show off a great fabric! I'll keep my comment short so I don't slow you down in your race to beat Dawn....good luck!

This is such a nice dress. It is so cold in Sydney today that the sight of it made me sigh with envy.

A perfect dress for summer! Do you know what you're making for class in August? I'm still not sure...
