Knit Dress

Mike and I have been traveling for almost three weeks now.  We drove from Colorado to Iowa to see my family, then continued on to New York to see his family.  I am exhausted!  But, I have seen some pretty cool things that I wanted to share before sharing my dress with you.  Check out these old sewing machines and forms!  I was in love with them and really wanted to take them home.  Sadly, the museum frowned upon that!






Now, onto the dress!  I made this dress a couple of years ago from a Project Runway maxi dress pattern.  I promise I will get the number as soon as I get home (I wrote it down, but of course have misplaced that note).  If I recall correctly, I followed the pattern exactly.  It was pretty simple and made a great dress.  I don't know exactly why I haven't worn it much since making it, but I do love it now!  It is very comfy.  The only thing I would change next time is to make it a little longer.  I like when it just touches the ground.  I usually wear it with a jean jacket, but it looks very cute without that too.  I wore this during our trip in Iowa to my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary party.  It was good to see the whole family!

Here is a picture of Mike and me.

Here is my mom, brother, and me.

All of us - clearly there was more than one camera to look at ;)


I hope you are finding some time this summer to do something you enjoy!  Happy sewing!
