Back in action! (…with a new Cynthia Rowley dress!)

Hello Sewing Friends!

I am back in action and in fine form after a prolonged absence (time goes so fast!!!)  I was mostly away because I moved to a new town to start studies in photojournalism – which I love – but it has pretty much consumed my life!  In that time though, I’ve been continuing to follow all my favorite sewing blogs and keeping up with all the cool new patterns that have been released – I have an ever growing sewing to do list!

First thing first, allow me to present my latest creation that I made using Simplicity 1873 by Cynthia Rowley:



As you can see, there is still some snow on the ground here in Toronto, and today it was also pretty windy:




It was really easy to make, not so many pieces. I lined it with a turquoise voile and inserted an invisible zipper.  The only alteration I ended up making was to shorten the straps.  I would definitely make this again!
