Cookin’ and Craftin’
“My day dress is the Style Arc Adeline cocoon dress made in a large-scale geometric print Japanese barkcloth- I love it! Comfy and stylish! For my night look, I went for the perfect little black dress. I used the Style Arc Marilyn pattern with its dramatic split sleeves and chose a drapey black basketweave poly blend fabric.”

“My Day/Work/Play dress is another McCalls pattern, 7119 which I picked because of the Raglan sleeve details. I have always loved this type bodice because it helps camouflage my rather large bust, I think so anyway. The fabric I chose is a Rayon Challis from Fabricmart with a small geometric design throughout.”
My Night/Evening dress is a sheath dress with keyhole opening at chest, neckband and sleeveless made with a textured stretch black Crepe from Joann Fabric. The Pattern I used is a vintage pattern McCalls pattern 1031 by Designer Geoffrey Beene from 1968 which happens to be the year of my birth. So this pattern is almost 50 years old. I have such a love for anything Vintage.
