New dress

The dress I made tonight from the McCalls M5516 pattern. I love the neckline and sleeves. Tempted to also make it but as a top. The pattern called for Rayon which I haven't used before and rayon thread. Definitely prefer cotton over rayon.

That's really lovely - what a fabulous colour. I'm sewing velvet made from 80% rayon and at this point I can't say that I'm a big fan of the stuff!

Thanks ladies! Thanks for visiting hoppo bumpo, I haven't tried velvet yet either, but certainly not a fan of rayon!

Hello again! Thanks for signing up for the Pay It Forward. I'll get my skates on and start making something :) Could you pop over to my blog and send your postal details, via the e-mail link? (Its a little way down the page)

PS. I can't remember what originally bought me to your blog ... I will have been following links all over the place, as I got more and more engrossed in blogs! But I like looking at what you are sewing so I bookmarked your blog :)

PPS. Whatever you do, don't try sewing a mostly rayon-based velvet!
