Colors of the Wind Dress

Pattern: McCall's Misses' Tops M6164 (bodice) and Mahaila's circle skirt formula (for a 3/4 skirt)
Fabric: 2 yds stretch knit
Cost: $9

I'm kind of pale, so I generally try to stay away from neutrals. But if a fabric grabs my attention on 2+ trips to the fabric store, I usually end up getting it, especially if it's in the sale sections. At $4.50 per yard, I couldn't resist. This dress has feathers and flowers blown across it, and reminded me of a very fall, American prairie sort of design. On this project I serged all the seams, using a coordinating color thread for the needle thread only. This worked out really well so that my white thread doesn't show through.

This is another circle skirt + top frankenpattern, a silhouette I can't seem to get enough of lately. I made this one a little longer so it's easy to wear to work. The fabric is soft and beautiful, and I got a ton of compliments. Check out Mahaila's pattern, it's just too easy!
