Very Easy Vogue V9075: Cruise Wear Inspired Jumpsuit

I had a lot of fun sewing view A of the V9075 pattern, so I decided to try view B as well.  The fabric is linen in a floral print and reminds me of cruise wear.  

Again, this is a quick and easy pattern to make, and the pockets are a great feature.  I didn't make any changes with the pattern, so the results you see in the pictures is the garment executed exactly as designed.

Very Easy Vogue V9075: View A in a Bold Floral Print

This dress was very easy dress to make - I was able to sew it from start to finish in less than eight hours.  It has pockets, which is one of my favorite features.  The only modification I made was to add 2" of length to the hem. 

The bold floral print fabric is a cotton blend, and I purchased it from my local Fabricland.

Both my belt and my shoes are from Aldo.

Simplicity 2599: Polka Dot Top with Modifications

I've made Simplicity 2599 before, so this time I decided to change things up by eliminating the ruffle completely and adding a sleeve.  I also changed the closure on the back - instead of a simple loop and button, I added half an inch to the center back to create a facing and plotted out spacing for ten buttons.

I'm also wearing my Burberry sunglasses and Christian Siriano stilettos.
