But, I didn't let that stop me from making it into a dress :) You really can't tell it's swimsuit fabric and it really does keep me cool, so there.
I bought McCall's 6559 for the awesome tie front cardigan, which I'll be making many of in the Fall, I think! I didn't plan on making the tank dress until I noticed it was a racerback style, which I love! Then it occurred to me that it would be perfect for this fabric, since there are few seams and so it wouldn't be too heavy.
I think my dress turned out cute and comfortable.
You can read my review of this pattern here.
I bought a couple of the new New Look patterns today (after finishing up the passport application process--whew! That was a big deal!) and I think I have my sewing mojo back. I have a skirt cut out and a couple dresses for the girls in the works too! I'm hoping for a trip to Denver Fabrics this weekend, so that should put me back in the game even more.
I'm particularly looking forward to sewing this one up! I love what they did with the grey and white stripes! If I could find that same fabric, I'd copy it exactly :)
What I'm lacking is everyday clothes. I've made plenty of church dresses, so I need to lay off those for awhile and make some everyday clothes and dresses. That's what I'll be focusing my sewing on. What about you?
