Brunch with Sew Sisters DMV Area Meetup + DIY Romper using S1880 & M6848

Hello Sew Family!

After much anticipation, I was able to chop it up brunch style with a group of amazing women that are a part of my Needles and Fashion FB group.  Oh what a time I had!  You would have thought we all knew each other for years if you sat next to us or was at the other end of the restaurant looking up at the sound of our continued laughter!

It was great to put faces and names together outside of our FB communications, each and every one of these ladies had a different story, different background and plenty of sewing woes!  I cannot express how much of a good time I had!

We all made swap gifts to exchange which was rather fun and the organizer Tasha even made each of us a N&F plague to take home.... This was too special and dear to my heart.










So.... I got up at 5:30am to begin on my fit for the day.  I have been wanting this romper FOREVER.  After a failed attempt last week, I was able to get the perfect pattern mix!  I began this journey with 2 yards of this floral fabric purchased from Joann's (cannot locate online but its in stores!).  I used Simplicity Pattern 1880 view B for the top of McCalls 6848 view D for the bottom. 

The first thing I did was extend the bodice by 8 inches (front, back and facing)


The rest was constructed as per the pattern directions and I absolutely loved the way it came out!  I paired the Romper with an ivory H&M Clutch and suede Alexander McQueen sandals.  



Look at my beautiful sew sisters!!!!!!
