My Husband was Jesus

Pic heavy, graphic images.

Our church held an Easter play this past Sunday and my husband was Jesus. These are some of the images. It was very powerful.

PR: V1224

Pattern: Vogue 1224

Pattern Description: MISSES' DRESS: Partially lined, pullover dress has short dolman sleeves, elasticized waistline and neckline with tie ends, stitched hems and above mid-knee length. Purchased stoppers for tie ends.

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 8

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did :)

Were the instructions easy to follow? Actually they were pretty simple for a "Designer Pattern" I think a beginner could give this a shot.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the style of this dress and I like how short and sassy this little number is.

Fabric Used: a printed knit I got at Joann's

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 1.5" to the bodice length because I have a long torso and wanted the elastic waist to hit my natural waistline. If I had not extended the bodice it would have rode up to high for me.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have so many new patterns I'm not sure I would sew it again but I don recommend it. If you are not use to the shortness of this pattern make sure to add to the length of the skirt ;)

Conclusion: I really love this dress! A great spring/summer addition to my wardrobe.

Pattern: Simplicity 2187

Pattern Description: Women's Tunic, Dress and Jumpsuit

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 6

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like this pattern a lot, although it is similar to the McCall Jumper Pattern.

Fabric Used: Seersucker

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The only thing I did different was that I made a belt instead of a sash, I wanted a cleaner look.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I'm not gonna make the jumper again but I think I will make the dress. I do recommend it.

Conclusion: I love this in the Seersucker!

PR: S2364

Pattern: Simplicity 2364

Pattern Description: Women's Tops

Pattern Sizing: I cut the smallest size

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Well kind of :)

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes they were pretty basic

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the different styles that are available in one envelope and this one was my favorite.

Fabric Used: Printed Modal

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Well as you can see I made a maxi out of it so I just used the top pattern and then extended that piece to form a skirt.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes I think I might make another maxi using a different view top :)

Conclusion: I love this dress! It's always great when you can get more then expected from a single pattern.
