Briar Shirt and Maritime Shorts

Mood Fabrics' metallic knit for Briar Tshirt and Style Maker's twill for Grainline's Maritime shorts
I know Labor Day is only a few days away but I am feverishly sewing up some of my summer fabric.  With Kaitlyn's wedding and several other family things this summer, June and July saw limited sewing from me.  I am making up for lost time.

Butterick 6051 - Maxi Dress

Butterick 6051 Maxi dress with red ponte skirt and stripe bodice
This is the project that almost didn't happen.  So many things happened along the way but finally it is finished.  I had this picture in my head, it was from one of  my Friday Fashion Inspirations. 
The first maxi dress, isn't it  wonderful?

Butterick 6169 - Column Dress in Abstract Jersey

Butterick 6169 dress in Mood Fabrics'  abstract rayon jersey

  Dresses are one of those things that are so fun to make and so easy to wear.  One stop in the closet, grab a dress and off you go, right?  I love seeing all the dresses people make in a variety of fabric.  With that being said, my casual and work lifestyle isn't one that requires many dresses, so I don't make them often.   Now there is an exception, this summer I have needed dresses for several weddings, evenings out and some work dinners.  My wardrobe was in a sad state for dresses and I have been busy correcting this oversight.
