Making a Statement with Nicole Lee and McCall’s 7160


I have been blogging outfits with some of the most amazing purses lately and ALL from Nicole Lee (Butterfly –also-, Red, Bright Floral).
All different in style but one HUGE thing in common, they are the ultimate statements pieces.
No matter where I go someone notices and tells me how much they are crushing on my newest purse,
and you know what? I’m obsessed with them, too!

Besides sewing the outfits I wear, these purses consistently get complimented on and I have to admit,
it makes a girl feel good when a stranger goes out of their way to tell you how amazing your purse it!
It would take a lot to bring someone out of their comfort zone to ask them where they can find that bag (HERE),

I LOVE IT! Thank you nice strangers!

With that said, this week’s dress inspiration is brought to you by my latest Nicole Lee purse;
the Brielle Colorblock Dome Bag is another standout piece that does not disappoint!
The blue and pink is great, but then they added some floral and rhinestone detail and it’s irresistible!
I also love how roomy the bag is inside and strong body on the outside;
with the blue looking very much like one of 2016’s Color of the Year,
I thought what better than to pair it with it’s other half!

ROSE QUARTZ

That shade of pink speaks to my soul, dress ideas of blush and bashful (<< thank you, Julia Roberts), flow endlessly into my mind like the following thought process below….
Blush and bashful” meets “that gorgeous pink dress from Dirty Dancing” meets “Mommy Style in 50 degree weather” meets...

McCall’s Pattern m7160.

It’s fast pattern that’s easy to sew and can get you looking your best in less than a day!
The exact fabric I’m wearing is a challenge for you because I discovered it on one of my Goodwill trips last fall,
HOWEVER, Hancock Fabrics sells a similar fabric (not texture) but SAME color, Blush Fashion Knit ITY (here).
I have used this fabric for one of my Red Carpet looks, here and here,
it would be great to use with this pattern BUT I would recommend lining the dress because the color can be a little sheer.
Which would work out great because it gives it an extra twirl-worthy layer.

Lucky for you, as mentioned earlier, the pattern is EASY.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!

    I have this pattern and love your designs with it, that’s why I purchased the pattern. Love how you also used it as a skirt pattern.
