Pretty Pattern Sunday #49

21 Jul

Some days I just LOVE that I know how to sew. This is one of those days.

I recently stumbled upon this photo of a very chic lady in a blue dress:

IneedthisdressI love everything about this picture. Her dress, obviously, the color, the fit, the styling, those giant black glasses . . . EVERYTHING! Clearly I need this dress. And thankfully, I can make it, using today’s pretty pattern and some fabric and notions.

Simplicity 5022I think view one will do nicely, what do you think? I found the perfect blue fabric, which is just a simple broadcloth and I plan to make a matching self fabric belt.

There has been quite a bit of sewing going on here at the Basement of late. I’ve got three, yes three blouses to show you. I just have to get over it and take the blasted pictures. The number one reason for me not blogging as much as I’d like is that I don’t like taking, uploading and editing pictures. I know! Weird! Now that I’m furloughed (yes, I work for the man) I have no excuses and plan to take time every Friday morning to set up the week’s posts. No excuses!!

Until next time,

    What an amazing dress! Can’t wait to see this one made up – along with your other recent makes!

    You’ve always looked great in dresses of that design. Can you find a nice fabric in black and white…maybe polka dots or strips with red buttons? Or navy and white with red buttons?
