I was so excited about my cousins wedding this past weekend. I picked a pattern Simplicity 2281
and fabric a few weeks ago and was ready to sew it up last week, but assisting my very ill sister kept me from getting it started. So I chose another pattern that I thought would be quicker M6744, but needless to say I did not get that finished either before I had to leave for South Carolina. So I ended wearing a dress I made a few months ago, M6700.
I got a lot of compliments on my M6700 dress so I was pleased, though the shoes I initially chose to wear with the dress fell apart. They were my favorite dressy dress shoes and they died on me after 10 long years. Thank God I had a decent backup. A little too casual but I had no choice, so they worked.
After returning from the wedding, I finished M6744 and I can't wait for an opportunity to wear it. Here goes:
I am so very pleased at how it turned out. I love this pattern.
