Even my hubby liked this!

Me, baby bro and my mommy!
My husband, God bless him, is sort of a solid color lover, but much to my surprise, he really loved my dress. I forgot to take a picture before we left for my cousin/godson's wedding but this gives me a chance to show off my mom and baby brother.

The wedding was wonderful, always good to see young people decide to do things God's way for a change.
The dress was Simplicity 3774 view C.  I cut a size 14 but should have went smaller. I will make this version again but will close the "v" up more to make the dress more church appropriate.

I got lots of compliments and request(all of which I decline graciously)

I got the fabric from Gaffney's Fabric in Philly on Memorial (30% off sale). You can always find nice fabric  at a great price there.

God bless

The dress is very pretty. I also find that I have to raise the neckline on most of my dresses to make them appropriate for church, office, etc.

Thanks Joyce for visiting and for the compliment!

You look fabulous... love the print. Looking at the pattern cover would've caused me to overlook that pattern totally.
