Holiday attire

Hey Everyone,
I know its been a long time since Ive been around these parts. I have had so much going on in my life and just haven't had the time to blog or sew. I was however,  able to squeak a garment out in time for my company Christmas party this year. I actually started out making a different dress but it didn't turn out so well. So I had to change directions and because time was limited I had to make something I could do basically with my eyes closed.

First, I decided not to make a dress and settled for one I had previously made for my Anniversary last year. Its an all time favorite V1314 blogged about here  It was a perfect holiday color in a nice emerald green. I have made this dress several times and still really love it.

I decided to add a little bling with one of my all time favorite patterns M6844
Ive made this garment several times so I won't go into a lot of detail here. I made the bodice with one type of sequin and had to do the flounce in a totally different sequin because I ran out. But in my opinion it doesn't look bad.
M6844 in sequin
I lined the bodice and sleeve because the sequin was pretty lightweight. I made View C.

   In addition to the jacket I had enough fabric left over to make a clutch. I loved the combination

M6844 and V1314

I loved the combination together.
Hopefully it will not be so long before I return.
Chat with y'all later
