Birthday Dress (Sponsored Post)


Another month passed and I am back on Minerva Blogger Network with another project. As September is my birthday month and it looks like I’ve been around for 40 years, I decided to make myself a not so wearable dress.

Well it is wearable, but it’s suitable more for special occasions. I do want want to wear it more though. This was quite a fun project for me.

Sewing Summary:

Pattern:    McCall’s 7929 – David Tutera – Fitted lined dresses have deep plunge V front with or without inset, gathered forward shoulder, and invisible back zipper, with length, sleeve and fabric variations. A, D: Semi-fitted skirt. B, D: Full trumpet skirt with front slit and train. Wrong side of fabric will show. A, C: Contrast overlay.

Sizing:  US AX5(4-6-8-10-12), D5(12-14-16-18-20) – for my dress I made size 12 (this is one size down – my body measurements put me in size 14)

Fabric:   5m of printed satin fabric and 5 m of black premium antistatic taffeta dress lining
