HI DARLINGS! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Although I have been working non-stop, I am energized and so excited for the next few months. I am speaking this week in Anaheim at RELENTLESS 2018 alongside the amazing ALEX RODRIGUEZ. There are so many great speakers, and I am honored to be in the mix. I also am gearing up to speak at UDEMY, it’s my second Keynote speech, so I am a little nervous but excited.  I also just started recording my new business and personal growth podcast which I will talk about some more in a few weeks. A lot of stuff is going on at one time, but I am pumped!

Okay now let’s talk about this super comfortable, I can live in this dress forever DIY. I made this using NEW LOOK 6511, details on the pattern and modifications below.

DIY DRESS PATTERN INFO & MODIFICATIONS

This NEW LOOK 6511top and dress pattern was on the top of my list to sew. I knew that I was going to modify it, so I filmed a step-by-step for my YOUTUBE which I will put up next week when I show you the other version I made. This one is simple, I just extended the bodice and doubled the ruffle size for more gathers. I left the edge raw on my linen which looks really cool, I also added two big pockets to the front.

The linen is a heavier weight which really makes this dress keep the shape. It is an easy breezy dress and I love wearing it. I got this linen at The Fabric Store, they closed the store here in LA which made me so sad but you can still order from their online store in NZ.
