Colors in February * Vogue 9147 and Simplicity 8169*

Good morning friends. It is another brr day in Minnesota and the weekend is shaping up to be a warm one so I am looking forward to that. Today I bring you a double dose of DIY loveliness :). I will say, I have become a rapid stitcher, YAY! Dresses that used to take 4 days to put together only take one day now. I am signed up to learn more this year so soon that time will be cut in half or less. Fingers crossed.

The first outfit is this dress I made from Vogue 9147 . It is a lovely dress with a bit of color blocking on the pockets, sleeves and collar. I love the drama the collar brings to this design. Skill level for sewing this is a little more than beginner sewing. I went with a mix of Ankara fabric for the dress body and blocked with coordinating denim fabric I had on hand. Check it out

The second piece for today is a flowy top made out of a cute black fabric with a unique design of colored hollow polka dots. This is Simplicity 8169.It has a skinny pussy bow and is extremely easy to put together. I love making blouses. If the right fabric is used and styled the right way, it always pops.
