It's been a long time…..

Soooooo. It's been a long time since I've posted anything. I found out in March that my job was moving to Fort Knox, Ky from Fort Jackson, SC and my husband and I new immediately that was not a move we wanted to make. I quickly started looking for alternatives and found a position I was interested in applying for in Tampa, Fl. Well, I got the job and I moved in April. It has been a world wind getting settled. Fortunately, we have wonderful friends who were already living in the area who allowed us to stay with them temporarily while we found a place. We moved into our new home in June and I'm just getting about 3/4 done with getting everything completed (painting, organization, etc.) Either way, I did do a very small amount of sewing so I will be posting about what I've done in the near future.

Hugs and Kisses,

Pattern Review: M6319 View C

Hello again! 

I know it seems like I'm back sooner than normal and I am. This is another dress that I made and wore this summer.
I really think this dress was a really nice addition to my work wardrobe. I also felt really comfortable with wearing this dress and wore it multiple times throughout the summer. A Picture and my review of this pattern is below.


Pattern Review: M6319

Pattern Descrption:

Fitted dress with tapered skirt has lined bodice and elasticized waist.

Pattern Sizing:

I cut a 14

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Yes.

Fabric Used:

stretch knit


Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:


I added my usual 2 inches to the bodice and 3 inches to the skirt. I think I could have added another inch to the skirt but I think I achieved a pretty decent fit.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, but not until next sprint. I will also complete it in other views just to give myself a little variety.

I would definitely recommend it to others. I was a really easy sew. The fitting was simple as well. 

I promise I'll work on better pics. It's just always so easy to get shots when I'm on the go.  :-)



Sorry, those floors are so hideous. I work for the Army and of course we don't have a interior decorator so we have to stick with what we have:). Shout out to the Soldiers. Keep doing what you do!!!! 

I'll be back soon!

Happy Sewing!!
