I saw so many pretty and sexy versions of this dress over at PatternReview.com that I had to make my own. Wow. It’s a great dress. Comfortable, quick to sew, sexy, and classy. How could it get any better? I made my version out of ITY from Fabric.com. It’s the partner fabric to this swimsuit cover up I made a few months ago. Same pattern; different colorway. What can I say about this dress that hasn’t already been said? It’s fantastic. The only modifications I made were to take it in about an inch on both sides from the arm to the hips and to make the hem about 4 inches shorter than it was. I’ve got a little pooling above my butt, but I think that is easily adjusted next time by taking a slightly larger SA for that back seam that attaches the bodice back to the CB of the dress. And yes, I said “next time.” I plan to make this in solid black too. It’s the perfect pattern for the little black dress.
What more can I say?
