It's that time of year again, the annual NAACP Image Awards Viewing Party. I found the perfect color fabric - a nod to the 2015 Pantone color of the year - and a Vogue vintage pattern (originally printed circa 1957) that I liked. I made the dress over three and a half evenings. As you can tell by the title something went wrong...Well, I took two of my children to their well child check ups yesterday afternoon. I noticed my youngest daughter felt a little warm when I picked her up from daycare, but I didn't think much about it because I'm usually cooler than she is. Imagine my surprise when the doctor said "we can't give her any shots today because she two different strains of the flu". Whaaaaat!? I didn't even know that was possible!
So, neededless to say my plans for going out were over, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. There is just something about mommy being there when you don't feel well. She's all tucked into bed and is resting now - which is a beautiful thing.
Here are a few pictures of the pattern and the dress. I will say that the top of this dress was unusually wide so I added pleats to the front and took up the straps to make it fit better. I also omitted the bow. I don't think I'll sew this one again, but it was fun to make! Toodles!
