Hi folks! I hope you all had a wonderful summer. I can't believe fall is around the corner and I didn't get to sew as much as I had planned for summer. This dress was part of my summer sewing plans and I finally got the chance to complete it. I really love the fabric - my co-worker brought it from China last year. It's very soft and feels great on the skin, plus it irons so beautifully. Since the fabric is so busy with the florals, I wanted to use a simple pattern with it - too much detail wouldn't show anyway. The pattern is a 1960s retro and really makes a quick sew; I made view C.
The fabric does wrinkle quickly, though. This was after wearing it to church. I wish I'd made it earlier in the summer, but we still have about two months of warm weather so I'll still be able to wear it a couple of times.
I definitely want to make at least 2 more versions of this dress, and I think a heavier fall fabric could work, too. Now I need to work on my fall plans 😉.
