Congratulating Ronaya after a spectacular performance

Ronaya: Jumpsuit with cover skirt: DIY

I had the pleasure of hearing a great friend of mine perform at her summer concert series a few months back called Tribute to Love: Summer Edition.  Her voice is amazing and so is her spoken word talent.  Please look for Ronaya K. Speaks on Facebook.  I had also made her jumpsuit and cover skirt you see her wearing here.

The dress I’m wearing is McCalls 6886. 

Alterations include:

-One arm dress by cutting diagonally from CF to under Right arm.

-Widen sleeves by 3 “ near the wrist to create a fuller sleeve.

-Flare 17” at CF and CB (each side)

-Lengthen to stopping point.

I did something new by adding horsehair to bottom of dress to stabilize the flare and keep its definition.  This was my favorite dress I made over the summer.  The fabric was light and comfortable and the print included all my favorite colors; orange, red, and fuchsia.
