McCall's 7429

McCall's 7429 in jersey knit from Style Maker Fabrics


The wedding is over, last daughter of four is married and it was so beautiful.  I promise pictures soon!
I took last week to catch up on the house and get ready for a baby shower at my house this past Sunday for 50 people!!!

Today I had time to take some blog photos.  My dress for the rehearsal and I made at the last minute.

McCall's 7429 is the pattern and the fabric is this beautiful jersey knit - from Style Maker Fabrics

Now this pattern is quick and easy except for the front twist and let me tell you, I struggled with this!  I remembered Brittany J Jones had a tutorial by the way of her  You Tube Channel and that made all the difference.

I was able to finish this dress a few nights before the rehearsal.  Now Meredith's wedding was outdoors for the ceremony and indoors for the reception. The temperature went down for this big day but we made the best of it and Meredith had the wedding of her dreams.  Temperatures were in the low 40's but we added a hot chocolate and coffee bar to the wedding ceremony and that was a big hit.

We did have the rehearsal in our family room, mostly due to having it at 5:30 on Friday evening.  I wore a moto jacket with my dress and tights, it was a great outfit and one I will love to wear on many more occasions.

I was being brave as it was cold out today and that called for a few photos inside




This might be the spot for winter photos!

So if you need a great holiday dress, try out this dress pattern.  Long sleeves are on option for the cooler/colder weather. 

Just wanted to share this photo of the view today, fall colors are always so pretty.



Now for the best photo with the bride - this was the indoor rehearsal!
