Guys so my sewing mojo has been pretty much non- existent-hence the reason it has taken me over a month to finish the hem of this simple dress,lol.. This dress is Simplicity 8383 and I was so gun-ho in making this dress, that I went out and purchased the pattern and paid full price, as I couldn't bare to wait the shipping out, then only to take a month to hem said dress that I just had to have :)..
This pattern is very easy. If you have any sewing experience, the instructions would not be of importance to you. The view that I made, view C, has only four pattern pieces:front, back, neck band, and the arm hole binding pattern pieces for the arm holes. I made the 16 and added four inches to the dress and I was still only able to do a tiny hem, so be mindful if you're only the taller end like myself. For the fabric, I used a rayon blend knit fabric that I purchased from a local vendor here in Hawaii some time ago, and I really adore the drape and movement of this fabric.
I also chose to leave off the zipper. I found that I was able to easily get this over this huge head just fine, so I just left the zipper off. For the hem, I just did a standard twin needle, but this project really had me jonesing for a cover-stitch machine, and I may just have to get one, hmm..

Well, that's all I have for now, guys! I'm not sure what's up next. I'm just trying to get back into the flow of things, ya know?!
