"Sew Something you Love"...

You've got that right Debra! When you look into your closet, what do you grab first? I have been missing dresses so much lately, they are so easy for busy mornings and so cool for hot days.

So, I grabbed a go-to pattern (one of the Marfy's that I have been dyeing to try, some fabulous fabric and started cutting.

This is the shirt dress Marfy 1659. I am making the top out of a sweet criss-cross pintucked white cotton, and the skirt out of laminated metallic silk/cotton herringbone (both from EOS of course).

I would like to take credit for the mix, but I was out shopping with my boss (yes, I love my job) and she suggested this at Ann Taylor Loft:

You seamstresses will understand why this didn't work out. As cute as it is (love those pleats), it is made out of this awefull acetate-nylon feeling stuff that itched like crazy! Oh yeah, and it is about 6" too short!

I think that the Marfy neckline, skirt and fit will look much better on me!
