Hello!

Welcome to my blog. This is new, but I'm looking forward to sharing my Quilting adventures and all the things I like here!

Surprise Keyhole Neckline Dress

Surprise Keyhole Neckline Dress

When I first started sewing garments, I was pleasantly surprised by this Project Runway Simplicity 1651 pattern. My first try I made it too large, so I bought the pattern again (because you know I cut my pattern pieces directly and don't bother with tracing them, ha!) and made a smaller size. This time it fit perfectly! I love all the options this dress comes with, multiple necklines, back options, sleeves and multiple skirt choices. I've made so many of this dress I've lost count, and by switching up the neck, skirt, sleeves or back, they always look different!

This particular version used Robert Kaufman's Neon Neppy, a drapey soft chambray with neon flecks woven in.

 Here I am at Quilt Market with my friends  Shawna  and  Valori .

I think this pattern is out of print, but if you see a copy around, I think it's worth picking up!
