Ok, how awesome is this dress! I opened the pattern envelope and pulled the uncut pattern out at 7.30pm yesterday - by 11.00pm, I was completely done sewing this dress. And I'm a distracted sewist - in between, I watched bits of TV, played with Biscuit, checked email, blah, blah.
3 pattern pieces. Very little fitting required. Nice and roomy, but yet not 'when are you due?'. I love this dress.
- I bought the fabric on my recent trip to New York Easter weekend. I was originally thinking a wrap dress, but that would have been more complicated fitting, and I wasn't in the mood for that. It is some kind of synthetic knit - $4 a yard, I think. (I think I bought it at Chic Fabrics, on W38? 39?)
- I didn't pay attention to fabric placement on the back, otherwise, I'd have centered the print. Meh.
- Yes, I realize this is not on my May sewing list. Bad Reethi.
