A Little Purple Dress

So I had good reason to sew up a new little outfit… our 12 year anniversary was a few weeks ago and we had a fun outing planned without kids! How fun to be us!

I made McCalls 7159, a pattern I planned to use for everyday dresses.

However, I was short material on my original pattern and improvised with this McCalls. It worked out well. A nice simple dress as I had anticipated.

This is a wrap around so it is a little flattering. Also a pleat in the back that gives lots of room for moving around. Overall this still feels very casual and I do wish I had made something a bit more fancy for my date.

And where did we go you may ask…the Circus of course!!

Cirque Du Soleil was in town and we absolutely loved it. Such a great time to reconnect on something fun.
