Friday Fashion Inspiration - 18

I think of Maxi dresses and I think spring/summer and fun.  Those of us who lives in certain parts of the Northern Hemisphere need summer fun thoughts for all this cold and snow.  So let's put our thoughts toward that.

Maxi Dresses are still really on the radar

This new one from McCall's 7121 is so fun with the stripes and the racer back

This is a Burda pattern, one of the young styles and at one of the Joann's Burda sales I picket it up.  This pattern and this fabric also from Joann's.

Simplicity 1499 - Famous RTW Vest Inspired

Do you ever see something in RTW and know you can make it?  I do that quite a bit but there is times there is a but and with Simplicity 1499 there was a big but!  Fabric...... sometimes it is all about the fabric and finding the right fabric.  I  wanted to make this vest all year, after all I featured it on a  Fashion Friday Inspiration.

Enter some fabric shopping online while television watching and I found this wonderful quilted fabric from Emma One Sock.  I could not hit the order button fast enough, what if someone or several someones had the same idea as me?  This fabric had to come to my house!

Friday Fashion Inspiration - 17

Ready for another week?  I am thinking dresses again, they seem to be a good transition piece from season to season.  Add a cardigan or jacket with boots and seem more winter.  Drop the layers and add a fun shoe, then you get a spring vibe.
Let's start with this wrap maxi from Diane von Furstenberg via Neiman Marcus
I have featured a wrap dress before but the maxi length really changes up the look, don't you think?
Here is a great one - Butterick 5847 - but hurry it is on clearance
