Happy Belated Mother's Day! I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
This is my mother's day dress. I always like to have something new to wear and I finished this up late Saturday night.
Here are the details of the dress:
MISSES'/MISSES' PETITE DRESSES: Loose-fitting dress has raglan sleeves and midriff. A,B: 3 piece sleeves and front pockets. A:purchase trim applied to middle sleeve and midriff. C: side seam pockets.
Fabric: Metro Suiting from Fabric.com purchased in 2011. To me, the black fabric didn't have the same feel as the royal. But it all worked out.
It looks just like the pattern, View C. I did not change anything except to add length to the dress and leave off the inside pockets.
I like the style and fit. I might make it again but in one of the other views.
It was quick and easy to sew. I highly recommend this pattern to others.

Also to venture out from the Big 4, the BMV Club now offers its members a 15% discount on all Marfy patterns. Of course, I've been stalking the Marfy site but never ordered anything. Since there's now an added incentive, I thought I'd order a couple. The yellow tunic is one of the new releases. The jacket I've had my eye on for quite some time.
Mind you, these patterns do not come in a pattern envelope and there are no descriptions or instructions. I haven't unfolded them yet. But look at how compact they are. I printed the pictures of each to have something to go by. These came in Tuesday's mail.
I am expecting another pattern. This time from Hot Patterns. This was my first purchase from them. Another "sale". I've seen this one on several blogs and I like it too. HP-1136
So that's my pattern shopping fix for the month. I have a Groupon to use at Chicago Textiles Outlet. My daughter will help me use that one. We have to plan a special day to go since they aren't open on Saturdays.
