I have a few posts to get up before the end of the year so let's get to it lol
I had a picture of this skirt on my inspiration board in my studio:
I wanted to do the same thing. When I found this fabric I knew how I would use it.
Even though the print is the same, I wanted to be very careful with the placement. If you don't really look, you will miss what I did.
The dress is a show stopper. Simple design with amazing fabric. Always the way to go. I kept my accessories super simple just wearing pops of green. I adore my shoes. I've been on the hunt for a great green show for over a year. These are PERFECT.
They don't have the green anymore but I LOVE this pink. Hmmmm
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: 8-16 I made the 12 and graded to the 14 at the hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? I hardly followed the instructions. I did glance over them and they were very straight forward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the simple style of this dress.
Fabric Used: Cotton Brocade. Since this was a cotton, you really couldn't tell which side was the right side. I used both sides of the fabric to create a little contrast. If you don't look really close you will miss it. I used the opposite side of the fabric on the sleeves and the princess seams. I was inspired by this skirt.
I did find this picture online. I love seeing something designer and truly being inspired by it and making it my own.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This dress will become a TNT for me when I need a simple dress to showcase some amazing fabric. I will make view B during the spring (unless something better comes along)
Great pattern, very simple to put together a great basic dress for your wardrobe.
