The Age Defying Wrap Dress

Hello Hello Hello

I’ve missed you all but I am so happy that I am finally getting the hang of managing multiple sewing projects.  In the middle of my mad sewing marathon 🙂 my mother came to visit.  As always, I asked her if she wanted me to make her something.  I know what the answer is but I ask anyway.  She went thru my pattern stash and selected New Look 6301.  So off to JoAnn’s we go –  I had coupons (of course) and we walked out with fabric for her dress and few other items for me.

The pattern was super easy and sews like a breeze.  I am in awe of how far I’ve come in terms of details and technique.  The only way to get better is to keep sewing and that is exactly what I intend to do.  So without further adieu – let me dazzle you with the dress details.

Perfectly aligned seams
Aligned Seams – Perfect
Top Stitching Perfect

Twin Need Hem Perfect
Twin Needle Hem – Perfect


And now time for the pièce de résistance – My Mother 🙂





As you can tell… she is very pleased with her new dress and I am pleased that she likes it.  I made View A for her as she wanted the flared bottom. You must give this pattern a try.  It’s easy and you’ll feel like the best sewist in the world when you’re done. I’m going to make one for myself and it will be a curve hugging maxi and I’ll probably add a split. 🙂

I have another contract work assignment coming up next week that will certainly eat into my beloved sewing.  So I am on a mission to work on and “complete” as many projects as possible so that you won’t miss me too much.   Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by.

Gotta Go….Gotta Sew!
