The pattern is really lovely to sew. All the dots lined up and it went together in record time. I did change the neckline to an even strip because I was not so sure about my abilities to sew the fancy one but other than that I sew it as directed. The back darts are WONDERFUL! They give the dress such great shape! It is very comfortable to wear and the design is simple enough that I can have quite a few in the closet with no problem.
I used a really nice sweater knit I picked up a Colorado Fabric. I have been wearing the heck out of this dress. It has been worn on a fabric shopping trip to Denver with my friend Caryn (Caryn's Blog), an opening night at an art gallery and a few grocery shopping trips too. It is super versatile!
I am currently working on a wool jacket that has been really intense. Once I finish, another one of these dresses is on the cutting table. It is the perfect feel-good quick project that I will be needing.
I gotta love a pattern that bring my super busy college girl home to sew. I think she did a fantastic job and I love her fabric.
