“The Irish Spring Dress.”


Good evening everyone! I just came back from attending “The Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick 74th Annual Dinner” at Whites of Westport. It’s such a wonderful event with such great people who do so much in our community. Tonight, I wore the dress I made this week from Vogue V8899. The sleeves are my own design as well as the matching clutch bag. The fabric is from JoAnn’s fabric store. It is completely lined and I used canvas material on the neckline as well as the sleeve facing and the “V” front piece. I’m naming this dress “The Irish Spring Dress.” The snow is melting away and we can finally see land. This has been one of the toughest winters I ever remember. I’m tired of wearing hats, boots and coats. Tonight, it felt great to wear something springy. Well, good night everyone. Hope you enjoy it and as always, thank you for sharing in my sewing journey. Have a great weekend everyone! Debora

Fado Night - Wear Black


Fado Night - Wear Black
Tonight we went to listen to Camane & Carminho sing fados at  Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford. It was really outstanding. For those of you who do not know what fado is, it’s  Portuguese songs accompanied by the Portuguese guitar dating back to early 19th century from Lisbon. It’s stories sung about destiny, fate and longing. The dress I wore tonight I sewed up from a  Cynthia Rowley pattern. I used the pattern several times. The material is a simple lace that I picked up at JoAnn’s Fabrics. It’s a simple dress that works well with most fabrics and I never seem to tire of the style. Well, it was a grand night and I’m glad I had a new dress to wear and that it was black lace, it went well with the Fado scene. Hope you enjoy it and as always, thank you for sharing in my sewing journey. Have a great weekend everyone! Debora
