A friend of mine and I were discussing how to sew a dress for an upcoming semi-formal dance she was attending.  She was concerned about finding one that she would look good in and still be comfortable.  One of the things we talked about was how important the style of dress is in relation to her preferences and body style.  We talked about looking at sewing patterns from wedding dress patterns to plus size prom dresses to get some ideas.  She wears plus size dresses and prefers to wear modest dresses.  We talked about vintage dresses or how to alter some of the more revealing formal dress patterns to make her more comfortable.  After looking through many sewing patterns she, in the end, decided to go with this Vogue pattern (number V1014).  We both thought the dress style would look great on her and it looks like it would be comfortable too.  I can’t wait to see the finished product.

I've been sewing since I was a child (a long, long time ago) and recently my daughter showed an interest in making something special. Bringing out the sewing machine always makes me wonder why I ever put it away. I really enjoy sewing and creating things to wear and look forward to sharing all the tips and tricks I use to help make things fit and flatter me when I sew dresses and anything else.
