I want a new dress.

I love the old navy beach dress, but I have made a commitment to myself that I would not buy new clothes that are made outside the USA.  It is my little pro-american, keep the jobs and money in our country attack against the world.  So I love this dress, I imagine that it is soft and comfy.\

My only way around my shopping dilemma is to either buy it thrift or sew it.  Since it is the current fashion, I doubt I will buy it thrift.  SO I am checking out patterns.


Misses' Design Your Look Dresses

sadly, both of these patterns only go to size 16 and my after baby pattern size is still about a size 20.  I am not sure why pattern sizes are so unforgiving.  So I am out of luck on these patterns.

I might have luck with this one:

I am really not sure how I am going to do on making a dress.  I figure, I am going to hit Goodwill and a few garage sales in the morning.  And then hit walmart for the pattern.  New Look 6774.  I will give it a try tomorrow night.  I read a few reviews on it and I hope it will be a good fit for me.  It is hard at the in between stage that I am at.  I have a big butt from the pregnancy but worst is my belly.  I know that it will go away on its own, but I am at the point that nothing fits.


I did try to copy a dress I already owned and it was a maternity one.  It turned out cute but a complete flop on fitting.  Try try again.  I need to go through my entire wardrobe and clean house. I have so much that I do not care for.
