New Dress

Back here I made New Look 6823 in fantastic fabric. On Sunday, I made the dress again in a sweater knit from Joann's.

This fabric doesn't make the statement the first one did but will be perfect with black boots on December 20th for oldest daughter's college graduation. Here is the neckline, I used a different view.

Full length, I should have taken the picture outside.

I finished the Weekender bag today, will get pictures tomorrow.

Closing shot, youngest daughter is posing like a model, cute picture.

The twins and I went to the mall on Saturday. They tried on clothing for Christmas ideas and I took pictures of the things they liked. We printed off the picture then added the store name and sizes to the picture. We thought this might make shopping a bit easier for family.


  1. Fun shopping list idea. My DD gets a little carried away with printing out her Christmas list, but it's helpful, that's for sure.

    I remember how much I liked the first dress. This one is really pretty also.

  3. good idea for the shopping list. when the boys were younger, i would snap photos with my phone's camera of things they liked. it was a great way to remember exactly which one of the 50 million lego sets they wanted.

  4. oops...forgot to the dress! it will look awesome with boots. congrats on the graduation, to you and college girl.

    I love your dress. I have a question. I keep reading about sweater knits from Joann's. The closest Joann's to me is 1.5 hours away. I called them and they said they don't have any. I am in Alabama and it is the small store in Ft Walton Beach Florida. Is it usually the bigger Joann's etc stores that have these sweater knits?
