HI DARLINGS! Well, I did a little sewing for mom. This week is all about my mom and today it’s about mom in this faux wrap dress I made her using Burda 6829. Over the last two years she has had a lot of up’s and downs but always manages to keep her faith and spirits intact. She spent 15 months on a mission in Mexico, a very dangerous part of Mexico, working with families who live and work in the city landfills. She is now back in Los Angeles with me and getting used to a new place, new home, new climate, LA traffic, etc. She is doing great since arriving six months ago.
Aside from all of those changes, she has also lost weight and has started living a healthier lifestyle; my mom had struggled with obesity for many years and now is feeling better all around. Since much of her clothing no longer fits, I decided to make her a few things. Now before you say how sweet I am, let me be honest here. I never sew for anyone, but when I made her the first dress I thought to myself if I make her two or three more pieces I could photograph her for the blog this week and then I won’t have to shoot and can take a break,” LOL!
So this week is “Mom Week” on the blog and she was down for that since she had such a great time when I did her mom makeover in 2016 (Posted HERE)
I used BURDA 6829 which is a great faux wrap dress pattern that pulls over so you don’t need any zippers or closures! I used a great stretch velvet floral print I had in my stash from LA FINCH FABRICS. The pink colorway is sold out but there is a RED FLORAL HERE. I didn’t make any modifications to the pattern aside from shortening it cuz mom is only 4 feet 11 inches.
