a quick sew dress
I love this fabric!
It needed a simple line pattern.
Something that would show off the lovely blocks of color.
This is the pattern I choose.
What did I change:
I didn't do any contract fabrics. and left the belt off. It would just
be hidden with this strong patterned fabric. I didn't want a pocket
to make the fabric pop out at my hip.
I loved this fabric so much I bought a vintage bag and shoes long ago
They have cried out to be used. So glad this dress made up quickly.
The fabric has lots of gold lines on it very pretty.
There is a zipper in the back and a side slit.
Because I left the belt off I made the vertical darts deeper
and it helped pull in the fit.
I loved the shape of this dress.
It wasn't straight and leaves some nice movement wrinkles.
The good kind.
I did add a full facing, it connected the arm facings and the neck. It's just
wide enough to hold everything down nice and flat. This is an update for the older
patterns I would always do!
Now to work on my flabby arms. Hand me my 3 pound weights!
I considered the over jacket but what fabric would ever do this fabric justice?
That beautiful necklace was a gift from my daughter. She bought it in Haiti when she
was working the earthquake.
I love it.
