While I haven't shown you a great photo of my expo spoils or really done a blow by blow recap - I have already sewn up a piece of fabric bought at Expo - 2015.
While standing and having fabric cut at the vogue Fabrics booth and Carolyn was visiting with Shams - I spotted this fabric that I hadn't seen before on the other side of the cutting table. It was screaming at me - screaming - wrap dress!!
So - I went over and grabbed the roll. I don't remember exactly how much is was, but I think it was a special at $3 a yard and I bought 4 yards. I still have enough left over to make a magic pencil skirt - I just have to decide if I want to make it for one of my girls, or myself.
I did my usual - trace the bodice patterns. I traced a straight 16 in the bodice, made no changed to the front or sleeves, but I did do my usual and took 2" of length out of the center back. Looking at photos of the back - it still looks like there is some extra length back there.
This dress was quick to make and was easy to wear. I paired it with black nylons and my red patent pumps. These poor shoes are soo old - but they don't get worn very often. Generally only with a black and white print dress - for some reason - that combo just demands red shoes!
