Remember how I said I was in a print rut? Well, here’s a another crazy print for you. This one, though is a winner-winner-chicken-dinner for me. It’s comfortable, fits well, and I love the colors. This is KwikSew 3578, a discontinued pattern. This is before they went to the Dark Side. They’ve never had really great pictures or line drawings, but I’ve loved this dress since it first came out. I’ve made it a few times before. Once here, and the other time here (ignore my bad hair, eek).
This time I made it a bit longer and added length to the torso like I should have way back in 2008 (holy crap I’ve been blogging a long time now). I understand my body fit much better than I did back then. I have a long torso and usually add an inch or so to most patterns in the torso. KwikSew in particular have short torsos and I usually add two or so inches to make the waist hit where it should. This dress is no exception and I added two inches above the waist.
This is a double knit fabric I bought from Fabric Mart when they were having a sale. Wouldn’t this dress be great in a scuba fabric? Like bright red scuba?? I think it could be a knockout.
