Starting The Year Out With a Perfect Travel Dress

Good Morning and a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
I had intended to get out a special Wednesday Showcase post yesterday, but I had a house full of guests and by the time they left, I was exhausted. So that post will wait until next week.
To begin this new year, I want to take a look back and share with you the lovely Perfect Travel Dress
that Cennetta of http://themahoganystylist.blogspot.com/ did for her daughter for Christmas. When I saw this picture, my first response was WOW!!!!! I think she looks absolutely incredible! And better yet, she loves her dress. Whew ;)
I actually had the opportunity to see Lauren in the piece but she was wearing it as a top like she is in the picture below. She wore the sleeves with less gathering which allowed them to hang a little longer on her arms, so you can see just how versatile the piece is.    
You can find Cennetta's full post and review here, http://themahoganystylist.blogspot.com/2013/12/rhondas-perfect-travel-dress-in-review.html. She's planning to make another for her sister.
If by chance you would like to give one a try for yourself, you can find my original post here, http://rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2012/10/fabulous-free-pattern-friday_13.html Please note that the measurements that I have given for the neckline are the minimum for the opening. Once you cut the neckline, try it on and if you would like for it to be a little more open, you can then cut the neckline a little bigger. Remember, you can always cut more away, you just can't put it back!!
Thanks so much Cennetta for giving the Perfect Travel Dress a try!!! You did an amazing job.
Remember, this dress will be on the program Sew It All sometime in either February or March. As soon as I know when it will air, I will let you know.
Wishing us all a fabulous new year!!

  2. Happy New Year! It was a pleasure. This is a fun project. Your designs are stylish and make drafting less intimidating. With the New Year, I will try a few more.

    1. I almost fell off my chair when I saw the pictures that you took of Lauren. I don't know if it is the style of the dress, the color or what, but wow does she ever look great!!! Oh, I left out one last thing...maybe it's the great sewing techniques that her mom possesses!! Yes, I think that must be it ;)

    2. Tee Hee. As you stated, I will make this again for my sister.
