As the end of Summer rapidly approaches and the temperatures here seem to be rising, I’m trying to squeeze in as many dresses and other warm weather items as I can before Fall sets in. For some reason I haven’t had as much time as I would have liked to sew this Summer so I’ve tried to choose projects that are quick to make since I like to wear what I make immediately, which is so different than when I buy clothes, I can have something I bought in my closet for weeks before wearing, but when I make something it’s usually on my back the next day.
Any way, this quick and easy dress was a great project as the pattern was drafted and the dress sewn in one day.
Pattern Description: Easy & Sexy strapless dress with a handkerchief hem.
Pattern Sizing: Since this is a tutorial the pattern sizing is customized to your measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Definitely, Mimi is a great teacher and gives great instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that you can fit the pattern according to your taste so it can be fitted or you can add a little more wearing ease if you’d like.
Fabric Used: I used an ITY knit from the stash
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations needed since this is a custom draft.
Conclusion: Definitely an easy and stylish dress and judging from my husband’s reaction to the dress I’d say it delivers on the sexy too!
