So, here we are this year! And the plan is for a "Scandal-like" trench coat and a fabulous black dress that I saw on a runway last year. And you would now expect me to import those photos right? Nah, that's not how I operate. I prefer to wait until the last minute and stress myself completely out in order to get the garments finished. That makes sense right? Yeah, I know. Completely nuts.
So, the title of the post suggest something easy and stress free. And that's exactly what I made Thursday night while watching Project Runway Allstars. And just so you know, this is not one of the dresses (yes, more than one is the intent!) I plan to create in celebration of my birthday. But, it was really easy and fun and I love the color.
This fabric was in my stash. I have had it for more than a year I'm certain. I either got it from Fabric.com or FashionFabrics.com. I can't remember why I originally selected it. But once it arrived, I guess I didn't like it for the intended project. Now I love it and so glad it was sitting there waiting for its moment. This pattern has been in my stash for a while as well. I love wrap dresses and should have far more than I actually have at this point. I need to correct that error! :-)
This came together very quickly. It fits well (need to force my daughter to take a photo of me in it!) I made it Thursday night while watching PR Allstars. Hemmed it Friday morning and wore it to work Friday. I got lots of compliments which confirmed this was a great combination.
So now, it's time to start that birthday collection. LOL, I kill myself with the nuttiness that is my logic. Well, my birthday is not until the last day of November, so I have time. Right??
