I know I said I need to stop making dresses, but I am also trying to sew what I have before I buy more fabric.

This fabric I bought about a year ago with the intention to make a dress.  I was wearing my brown jacket when I bought it and I thought it contrasted with the jacket amazingly.

Simplicity 8511, view A, size 14

I thought this pattern sewed up pretty easily and I’m happy with the result.  The darts in this dress were new to me and I think they are fun.

I’m a huge fan of the statement sleeve trend and I’ll be disappointed when it’s not a trend anymore.  I think all the possibilities are fun.

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
