DIY Velvet Swing Dress

Happy New Year Dolls!!

It has seriously been quite an exciting year in all aspects, but especially here on the blog! I think I found my groove as far as sewing time goes. I have mastered the art of sewing during nap time (or really early in the morning.. I’m talking 4am on a weekend people!), and writing blog posts on the weekends.

If you have recently started following me or been here for a while, take a minute to view the most popular posts of the year! Be sure to share them via Facebook or Pinterest!

In the beginning of 2015 I set quite a few blog goals, and one that stuck out was for me to sew more independent pattern designers. 3 pair of True Bias Hudson pants, and a pair of Ginger jeans later… yeah, I’ll do better next year.

In 2016 I plan to continue networking and building opportunities for the blog. I have received so much positivity on my blog, and I thank every one of you! There are for sure some old bitty’s that don’t appreciate a youngin’ such as myself, but I’m working on my attitude and the internet trolls won’t break me

If you haven’t followed the Pinterest board that I collaborate on Fabulous DIY Style Influencers do it now! It is an extremely talented group of women, and I am honored to be a contributor.

ON TO THE DRESS! This crushed velvet dress was made using my favorite knit dress sloper *drum roll please* McCalls 6886! (it’s no surprise) as a base. I made it a tunic length swing dress, added a cutout in the back, and added a mock neck.

I had to style this dress with my favorite boots by Stuart Weitzman. These are the Highland, and they have so many great colors and similar styles. 

I hope you are all relaxing today. We will be in the house playing with baby boy all day. He got a tent for Christmas, and I may or may not grab a glass of wine and eat Costco pizza in it. I’m just saying. You can’t judge because it’s the first of the year, and you promised. Lol.
