Vogue 1169 - Rebecca Taylor -- How cute is this suit? Despite the model's lack of curves, this suit would look wonderful on those of us with some!
Vogue 1157 - Tracy Reese -- At first glance, I thought this was also a suit. But this is a dress! I love the the peplum! One of the best 80's trends around! I was almost deterred by the dreadful chartreuse color that always makes me look ill. But then I remembered: I SEW AND PICK MY OWN FABRIC! LOL
Vogue 1159 - Donna Karan -- You really have to look at the technical drawing to really appreciate the draping of this dress. Even though I fought like hell to make the Donna Karan winter white dress and vowed to never make it again... well, this is an entirely different pattern and I'm definitely going to make this one!
Vogue 1161 - Rachel Comey -- This dress? Very sexy... love it! This is another one that you have to look at the technical drawing to really appreciate it.
Vogue 1153 - Anna Sui -- This dress is so cool and breezy looking. I can see it now with a pair of strappy flat gladiator sandals.
Vogue 1158 - Tracy Reese -- Another great dress by fab designer Tracy Reese. I think I like this one much better than the one I made last year! Look at the back!
Vogue 1160 - DKNY -- I absolutely love this dress! I think it's fabulous that it comes with a slip also! I know already that I'll be cursing the day I ever thought this pattern was great when I start handling the silk chiffon that it MUST be made in!
I always have to add dressy dresses to my closet. I've never been one to wait until the last minute when I have an event I need to attend to sew something. Sewing under pressure just never works out for me and is usually an EPIC FAIL! I really like the next three and they would be fabulous special occasion pieces. A woman must be prepared!
