During camp I got a chance to do a little bit of everything. I even had to leave and sing at a wedding while I was there. It cut down on my sewing time, but I still got 5 pieces done, and my summer wardrobe is a little refreshed for it, which makes me happy., I have not been able to get any sewing done, and that weekend reminded me how much I've missed it. Fabric Mart was a blast!!!!!!! If you ever get a chance to visit in person, please go. I have a very bad addiction to fabric. It's a place I need to not frequent too often as I purchased over 60 yards of fabric. (SIKE!!!!) Who am I fooling. Hey, this addition is better than other additions and it helps me with a useful skill, so I'm not going to complain. I'll take pictures and show you what got purchased in another post. I shipped my box home this year and to tell you how fast they were, the box was waiting for me when I arrived home.
Anyway, I don't want to keep you guys waiting any longer. One of the garments I worked on at sew camp was McCall 6559.
I think I've had this pattern forever, and it is definitely one of my favorites. I love this maxi dress. I also think everyone owns this pattern. To tell you how old this pattern is, I think it's been around since 2012. Someone please confirm this for me. If you don't have it, get it as it's a classic and should be in everyone's stash pile. It's an OOP pattern, but I'm sure it can be found online if you search for it. This maxi can be worn out to a summer party or function dressed up, it can be worn casually around on a summer day and it can be worn around the house just lazing around or worn to bed as a nightgown. It all depends on your fabric choice and how you want to wear it.
I'll be making at least 1-2 more before the summer is over. I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend and your summer. I'm off to go do some spinning as Tour de Fleece started yesterday. I think I'll also be wearing my maxi today. Let me know what you're up to.
Enjoy and be blessed!!!!!
