You all know how this story goes:
"I was on pinterest..." lol
Pinterest is truly the beginning of ALL things.
I saw this fabulous Michael Kors Shift Dress and just knew I had to have my own version.
I ALMOST went ahead and made it in colbalt blue like my inspiration dress but I recently added a blue dress to my wardrobe. I decided this pink would be much more fabulous.
I loved the collar on this one. I've made two dresses with similar collars already. I love this style dress on me.
I kept my accessories simple. I love seeing red & pink together so I decided on this wine color purse and my oh so pretty pink bow pumps. Sparkly bracelets and some sparkly earrings completed the look.
Here is a close up of my adorabo shoes, because y'all know...it's ALL about the shoes.
I made view D.
Pattern Sizing: 8-18 I cut the size 10
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? These instructions are great. I didn't really use them but I did have to read over them for the collar construction.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved that this pattern was similar to my inspiration dress.
Fabric Used: I honestly don't know what kind of fabric this is. I picked it up from Metro Textiles while I was in NY. It's heavy, like a wool crepe, but almost reminds me of a ponte knit. It's a woven but it's stretchy lol. I absolutely LOVE IT.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added some additional shaping, length and added an exposed zipper.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I JUST might sew this one again. I LOVE it. I highly recommend it if you like this style.
Conclusion: This is a great pattern. It's such a classic style and this may be my most favorite garment to date lol.
