McCall’s 8092 White Linen Off the Shoulder Dress

Here is the most recent dress I made. I have made two dresses in the last year. I guess I have taken a break from sewing. Hopefully I can get my motivation back to sew again.

I made this dress in May. It was for a Mommy and Son Glow dance. We had to wear either white or neon. I didn’t end up wearing this dress but I think it makes a very nice summer dress.

I chose View A without the ruffle and with the length of View B. I didn’t make the fabric belt.

This dress can be worn off the shoulders or not depending on how you sew in the elastic.

This dress was fairly quick and easy to sew.

Simplicity 9325 Red Rose and Blue Dress

It’s been awhile since I’ve sewn anything. However, I did manage to make two dresses in the last year. The first dress is this Simplicity 9325 dress that I have named “Red, Rose and Blue” dress. I made this dress in July of 2021. This pattern is described as a relaxed over-the-head dress in three lengths. It has a choice of flutter sleeves, a self ruffle detail or sleeveless. I chose View C with the self ruffle detail and the shorter length.

I used a bubble crepe fabric. The directions were easy to follow. It is a relaxed, loose fit but has a tie on the sides that you tie to the back to give the dress some shape. It’s the perfect summer dress.
