The Patriotic Dress

Heh. Hey. Hey guys.

Does anyone remember when I made this dress? (If not, you can read all about the pattern over there!)
Well, I used the same pattern and have created... quite possibly the best thing I have ever sewn:

Patriotic Dress

MERICAAAA. PATRIOTISMMMM.
Seriously guys. I was laughing the whole time while making this because... well... sexy presidents. Who knew? Seriously. Dead.

Patriotic Dress

I found the fabric at Joann's and thought "THIS. I NEED SOMETHING WITH THIS."
And I know that the fabric is a little out there, but I really have no boundaries. So I regret nothing about this purchase haha.

And apparently, the sexy presidents is just one fabric in a line of many. I also found sexy cowboys, Irishmen, and construction workers, to name a few.

I mean come on. Even if you are not American, you have to admit that this fabric is pretty boss. Content aside, the painting and rendering is actually quite gorgeous [art nerd, let me beeee].

And who wouldn't want to celebrate the founding fathers, especially since President's day is right around the corner. You know I'll be kickin' it so hard all day in this tomorrow.

Beyond that, the sewing of this was really quite easy. Like I mentioned in my last post, I really love that New Look pattern I intend on making a thousand more dresses with this pattern, and no one can stop me [a Tardis dress is next on my docket].


So yeah-- Pinnacle of my sewing career.
I would definitely encourage everyone to make at least five of these. Because I can assure you that EVERYONE will be super jealous. I know I would be....

  4. Oh my gosh, that dress! Wow! I'm not brave enough to wear something with a print like that, but props to you! That pattern does look really nice and comfy too. I have been trying to learn how to sew off and on for years, but I wonder if that pattern could be a good one for a beginner. So far I've just made a baby blanket and a bag. So, I'm not very advanced but my mom is practically an expert and could help. Great job on this!

  8. You have an eye for beauty (and humor!) in all its forms. Even when it comes to an 8-pack. Seriously folks, count them. I sure did.

    I saw this at Crafty Allie, and now I want you to share this at my party, too: Treasure Box Tuesdays (going on right now!)

    You did a great job! ♥
