Sew What to Wear to the Party?


Now the holidays and end of the year are coming FAST! That means it is time for us to do the annual leg shave for the holiday dresses (unless you opted for pants) Hey no one likes to get cold and that extra hair is keeping us ladied from dying of hypothermia. Maybe.

Well Made for Mermaids & Pattern for Pirates put together this tour to help you get inspired for the holidays. I have my wedding anniversary coming up in December, so I let that and parties be my inspiration.

I needed a hot little number that will make me feel like attending a party & to make sure my husband’s heart is still ticking. I think this dress should do the trick.

Burgundy sequined tulle is perfect for some vavavoom. To get my look, I mashed 3 patterns:

I promise this dress goes together so easy once you get the pattern mashing done. After it was cut out, less than an hour to sew. For real! So maybe 3 hours tops from assembly to finish.

Patterns for Pirates Layer Me Up

Made for Mermaids Megan Romper

Made for Mermaids Mama Ella


To get this look, I started with the Tunic length of the Layer Me Up to get that bodycon fit. The easiest way to get that is mashing the LMU & Pirate pencil skirt for your desired length but I already knew the tunic worked for what I wanted. I also added 2 inches of length to that.

Then I took the front and back neck of the Mama Ella and used the high back. Since this is a sequin dress, I lined instead of using binding around the neck. I had to create a fish eye dart under the back scoop to keep it in place with my sway back & booty.

Lastly, I took the sleeves of the Megan Romper to get the bishop style sleeve. And that is it. It went together super fast.
