There Is A First Time For Everything

This is my first dress that I have completed and I could not be more happy. It is also my first Copy Cat, meaning I saw the outfit  and then I made it for myself. The inspiration came from the photo shoot Jill Scott did for Ebony Magazine.  I am no professional but I think my version came pretty close.  What do you think?

I made and wore this dress for my 6th wedding anniversary weekend, that made it even more special.  I received several compliments and a lot of looks, you never know what a look means though, LOL, could be good or bad.  I felt confident and sexy that night.  I will wear this outfit again.


I do have one confession to make.  I still have a lot to learn about putting in a zipper!  That invisible zipper is anything but what it should be.


The dress is made out of stretch denim and a modified Butterick pattern.  The jacket is made out of redheart soft yarn and designed by The Double Stitch Twins.
