2016 FAL Number 6, 2nd Quarter

 

2014a-20162bbutton2b2502bbest2b150

Hello everyone!  Hope you’re having a good week. I have another Finish-A-Long to share today. You can find my list for the second quarter here.

 

I finished my dress from McCall’s pattern 6958.

It was pretty easy. It has tucks on the front and back and a center zipper and it only took a few days to make.

The fabric is a Moda Lawn called Regent Street by Sentimental Studios. It’s soft and light, perfect for a summer dress.

The back has the same tucks as the front.

This picture shows the details of the fabric. The background is a dark brown which makes all those pink flowers pop.

I’ve been busy with a few other things, too. I’ve been working on the 2nd applique block for Maggie’s First Dance which you’ll see July 6.  Also I started June’s Minis and More, Star Bright Mini, by Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life. I decided to go with some Christmas fabrics.

The fabrics are from my stash from different designers. I made a tote bag out of them a few years ago.

It’s an original design that I’ve been thinking about writing a pattern for. An idea for another day.

I’ll show another finish in day or two. Thanks for stopping by.
