Happy New Year everyone! Are you ready to take on 2017? I am! I have wonderful plans for the year and plan on it being a great year.
Today I am sharing this awesome dress that I’m totally in love with. I used McCall’s 7471, which is a pattern for pullover tops and tunic. I extended the length on the tunic to make it into a dress. I absolutely love the soft drape on the cowl neck. I used another piece that I picked up on my last trip to the Michael Levine Loft. It’s another thin, very stretchy, knit. The color is EVERYTHING! I look best in bold colors and this one complements my skin tone so well.
This was incredibly easy to sew–only 3 pieces! So for all you beginners, this is a green light for you. I will probably make one each in the tunic length and the top length. That’s how much I like this pattern, and I have plenty knit fabric in my stash. So don’t be surprised if you see this one again pretty soon.
Now I’m pretty sure you’re all wondering, “Who is this lady on Anita’s blog!” Teehehehee!!! It’s me!!! I’m playing around with new hair. I was ready for a change so I purchased this new wig. Her name is Alexis! Tell me what you think. I really do love how wigs have improved since back in the day when my mother and aunts wore them. They’re very lightweight and can look pretty natural if you work with them. My husband REALLY LOVES this look so I decided to go ahead and try it with this dress. She may be my new look for 2017 (I think). We’ll see. I used to change my hair all the time, but I haven’t made any changes in years. Since my husband is retiring, I think it’s time to spice it up a bit, because we’re about to be all over the place. Hehehe!
