Chanta Patton and James Phillips

During Week 2, we shot scenes with the fabulous Adrienne Bailon of The Cheetah Girls! She is much tinier than she looks on tv and in print. It was like dressing a doll!

Ingrid Clay

Denyce Lawton

And we also introduced the beautiful Shanti Lowry. A lot of you will recognize her as Dionne from "The Game".

No Sewing for a Month!

My posting for the next month will be pretty limited. I'll be in "The Valley of the Sun" on the set working on a new film from Team Sizzle Films - "The Coalition" as wardrobe supervisor until June 14th. I'm so excited! This is an amazing opportunity and a fabulous learning experience! The cast is beautiful and hopefully the wardrobe will do their characters justice!

Wish me well!

Vogue 1250 - The DKNY Dress That Everyone's Made!

OR will be probably making in the near future! Yes, I'm jumping aboard the Vogue 1250 bandwagon. The cowl neck bug has bitten me as well.

Original retail price - $265

Description: Cap sleeved jersey dress featuring a draped cowl neck.

Size: 6 - 20, I cut the 16.

Did it look like the pattern envelope when you were done sewing it? Pretty much!

Fabric: Matte Jersey

Were the instructions easy to follow? Extremely easy! Great project for a beginner. I finished this from cutting to sewing in about 3 hours.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Seriously? What's not to love! This is a universally flattering dress that looks great on everyone that I've seen who has made it.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? Just the usual. I lengthened it by an inch at the waist and 2 inches at the hem. And I made a belt from the same fabric. I just thought it looked better belted.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I just may! Not anytime soon, but I may do it in another color since it was so quick and easy. Recommend it? This dress sells itself!
