My co-hosts and I are finished with our wrap dresses and we’re ready to show them off to you! As you’ll recall, I was making my wrap dress for my niece Konstance, who needs to add some more career-type clothes to her post-college wardrobe. Konstance and her family came over this past Sunday for Easter dinner and I forced her into an impromptu modeling session:
She loves this dress! (Vogue Patterns V8379) I think it looks fabulous on her and I’m giving myself major pats on the back for sewing it. “Wow, that dress looks like you could buy it in a store,” is how Konstance’s 10-year-old sister praised my work. To which my sister chimed in with “It’s even better than store-bought because Aunt Meg made it and she’s a phenomenal sewer.” Don’t you just love when family members gush over your sewing?
We took some shots of this dress in the McCall Pattern Company photo studio:
But wait, here are my co-hosts’ finished dresses: ReDpants Design, Sew Wrong. Love their dresses! How are your dresses coming along?
