Dress Envy


I spent the past 10 minutes scouring the internet for a picture of Cindy McCain's dress (worn today while visiting a Virginia coffee shop with her husband.) I caught a glimpse of it on the evening news and just HAD to have a closer peek! Look at those cute pleats at the neckline & waistline...and the neck treatment itself is wonderful!

I'm thinking a modification of this BWOF 09-2007-117 would work:
and this top from BWOF 02-08-101 has a similar neck treatment:
And that's about it as far as sewing goes around here the past week!! This is my last week of school (just 2 more days!) so hopefully things will slow down enough I'll have some ME time with the Bernina by Wednesday!

What's everyone else been sewing??

  4. No fair. I have two and a half weeks left in the classroom. However, I'm excited you'll have time to make that dress. I can't wait to see how your version turns out.
