My husband and I have this saying when things get really busy around here. “Work hard – Play hard!” So, while we’re busy moving, we’re keeping in mind that we have a little get-away planned, to take place shortly after the move. Sometimes you just have to get away to refresh.
Peasant Dress – McCall’s 6558
I’ve had my eye on this pattern for quite a while, but I haven’t been able to purchase it at the local JoAnn’s Fabric Store because it’s been out of stock. Therefore, when we had business in a different town, I went to two different JoAnn’s stores, looking for this pattern. The second store I found had it in stock, and boy was I happy. I knew I wanted to sew it up with a springy, light weight fabric, so when I saw this gorgeous multi pastel cotton, I thought it would be perfect for this dress.
Have you ever worn an off-the-shoulder top or dress and found yourself constantly pulling at the top to keep it “off the shoulders?” Well, I recently learned about a great tip, in the sewing group, to keep the top off the shoulders. Check it out HERE! I tried it and it really works. Now we can really enjoy wearing our off-the-shoulder tops and dresses without the fuss.
