Summer dressy casual

I decided to sew up Vogue 8553 for myself out of this lovely ITY print and a plain cream ITY contrast. It was easy to sew and flattering to wear. For an FBA, all it really needs is a little length!

 I found this great giraffe print fabric at a store in Wilmington, NC while on a business trip in March and finally got around to making it up. I used a tan and cream check for the contrast portions of the pattern.

My giraffe fan LOVES his new shirt!


  1. love your dress ..looks great on you.
    And the shirt is so cute, looks great with his tee.
    Happy sewing.

  2. Nothing like great dress huh? I love the contrast too, it help pop the print. The shirt came out great too.

  3. Beautiful dress! I love that fabric. The giraffe shirt is so cute too :)

  4. I really like the dress on you, nice style and fit.
