Wrap Top – Butterick 6285

I love all things that wrap! I mean who doesn’t? Wrap dress, wrap shirts, wrap skirts, they’re all great! I know I’ve made one wrap skirt (here), a reversible wrap dress (here), several faux wrap dresses and a few faux wrap tops, but never a true wrap top. That might be because I rarely make…

I promise next week I’ll be posting some new garments as I’m itching to do some selfish sewing. For now…

Blue Date Night Dress – Vogue 8825

I loved this dress from the minute I saw it on Mimi G’s blog last year. It looked difficult to my novice eyes so I did some research on pattern review.  I actually fell even deeper in love with this pattern while taking in others renditions of the dress. Most of the reviewers had positive feedback…
