It's also perfect for you advanced sewers. Why? Because it is a comfy knit dress of course!
The pattern I used was Simplicity 1358. I had intended to use view B but ended up using view C. This happened because I obviously don't know how to count and did not have enough fabric to make view B. I debated on ordering more fabric but decided I couldn't be patient and went with the shorter dress.
The dress only took a couple hours to sew up. Luckily for me my mom is letting me borrow her sewing machine until I can buy a better one so I actually could use a stretch stitch.
And here is the dress..
I love the fabric, It is very bright colors. Perfect for spring and summer. Right now it's warm enough to wear during the day, just not mornings or evenings. But soon I can wear it regularly. And I will.
The fabric is called Aqua Green Peacock-Inspired Polyester Jersey Knit and I got it from Mood Fabrics.
I used a size 12 pattern and cut it out to a size 14 for my hips. No other modifications were made.
And because it is knit it is super easy to bend down and stretch while wearing.
Mmmm fresh eggs...
And because this is a sewing blog, not a backyard chicken blog. One more shot of the dress..
