All Dressed Up Blog Tour: Spring Edition Day 4

Thursday Thursday - here at Winter Wear Design, we know that Thursday means $3 Thursday.   So a steal of a deal and an amazing blog tour meant that I just had to sew up an 'All Dressed Up' version of today's three dollar pattern - the OMEGA!!!

Ladies......LADIES..... if you do not yet own the Omega, this is one that you need.  I had 6 already hanging in my closet and now I've got a new one to bring me into spring that feels just a smidge more dressed up than all the others.

You can read all about my Omega below, but first, let's take a look at the two sensational seamstresses who have joined the tour today. 
First up we have Rachel of Violets and Jewels sharing her adorable take on the Stargazer Pintuck Dress.  I'm swooning over the fabric, and jsut look at that exposed seam ruffle - I adore details like that.  Head on over to Rachel's blog to see all the photos and read about how she created her look.

Next we have Alyssa of The Sewing Goatherd with her Outerbanks Boatneck and Boulevard Skirt. Swoon, swoon, swoon, swoon, swoon.  Alyssa made this outfit to wear for Easter and I'm completely in love - plus I'm feeling ever so in fashion since I wore one of my boulevard's for Easter too and I always think Alyssa's style is amazing!  And Are you looking at that neckline on the Outerbanks, this is one hack that I just have to recreate!!!  And this girl didn't stop there, she took the Classic Shell and created an amazing drop waist dress for her sister.  Check out all the details of Alyssa & her sister's looks over on her blog.

Ok, now I get to blather about the Omega.  I love this pattern becasue it is comfortable but looks pulled together.  It isn't fitted, but still shows off natural curves in all the right places.  It is also a crazy fast sew, which when you need a bit of something new to transition from one season to the next, fast sews that are beyond a basic tee shirt can make all the difference.  The Omega is designed for wovens, but can also be made in knit - or in my case a combination of the two.
I bought this soft seafoam woven lace and slub knit last summer with plans to make 'something'.  Ha, please tell me I'm not alone!!!  The knit is a bit sheer and does not have much stretch at all, so I knew it needed to be used in a looser silhouette, but it is just the perfect color and weight for spring heading into summer.



  I decided to line the top yoke with the knit so that I could wear any bra without worrying about straps.  But I left the sleeves unlined to show off the beauty of the fabric and for that extra bit of breeze as the temperatures rise.  I hand cut the lace following the anchor lines of stitching, this way I got a beautiful detail without having to worry that the lace would fall apart as it is washed and worn.
Here is a little look at my litany of Omegas.  Don't forget you can grab this pattern for just $3 TODAY ONLY!!!!
