To say I am in love with this pattern would be an understatement. What is more comfortable than a knit dress with an elasticized waistband and flowy skirt? Anything? No- I didn’t think so. Being able to sew one up in less than a few hours and feel beautiful wearing it= major bonus. Unfortunately I am on the fence about my fabric choice for this one. On the one hand I feel like I am wearing a retro floral cocktail dress…on the other hand I feel like a 1980’s Laura Ashley comforter. The verdict is still out on this one! Anyways, It feels really good, was easy to make, is comfortable and fits perfectly.
I chose to use a ponte de roma fabric for this version- it is a nice medium weight jersey with great stretch and is completely opaque so no fear of anything showing through! I purchased my fabric from girlcharlee.com- and while I love most of what I have purchased from them this already looks a little fuzzy to me- so I am not sure how it will wear in time. I made the unlined 3/4 sleeve version with no collar. I think this will be worn pretty frequently with a pair of pumps or boots to work. If I can get over the feeling of being wrapped in an old floral comforter!
