Late Post….YIKES. I apologize you guys. So I recently participated in the Pretty Girls Sew fall inspired sew-log. Participants were advised to create any one of the variations from McCalls 7802. I made view C, with a few alterations to the sleeves such as not adding the elastic at the bottom of the sleeves and I shorten the sleeves. I must say it was exciting experience. I reached out to Pretty Girls Sew and mentioned that I’ve been following them for some time now and would always look forward to seeing all of my fellow seamstress come up with some amazing pieces for their annual RAE challenges and that I just simply enjoyed witnessing all of the talent during the sew alongs.
Here is my version of McCalls pattern 7802. I love everything about the dress. At first sight I thought the dress was a little bore, so I decided to give it a little life by using this soft stretch faux leather, which I picked up from my local Hobby Lobby store. I believe black and leather can always add some spiciness. To finish off the outfit I paired it with these CRAZY COOL Isabelle Marant ankle boots that I picked up from Shop Her Closet pop up shop which was sponsored by Sugar Plum Consignment and lastly topped my outfit off with this beret I picked up from a local estate sale….everything here is budget friendly…and that’s the name of the game YAY!!!! BTW….sorry about the dark pics. It was cloudy day I decided to capture these pictures.
Be Blessed and I hope you loved this look and enjoyed the post.
