LOVE this, as an option for myself and as a dress on you! This is really cute and your use of the striped fabric is perfect.

You really are on a roll! First the terrific cardigans and now this smashing dress. I've made the cardi, and now might have to try this dress. Thanks for keeping us inspired!

Cute dress! You are on a roll with the projects, I need some kind of motivation to sew up all of the ideas in my head.

Cute dress! I had been looking for a pattern for a dress exactly like this! I agree with the shorter length too.

Thank you everyone for the kind words! I have been on a crazy kick the past few weeks. I'll take it! I hemmed and hawed over the stripe placement, specifically the band of white over my belly area. But I like it. I think it works :)

Great top and stripe placement. Super cute with the leggings. I don't know how you find time for all this sewing lately!

It's all been said already. You have an eye for what looks good on you the wearer and for picking the right fabric for a pattern. Your reviews are also fun to read (important!) and packed full of useful info.

Oh my goodness, that's a fabulous dress ! I've noticed lately I really enjoy everything you're making. If I ever get off my butt and get to sewing, I may copy your closet LOL :-) Right now, I've got a stripey ponte that I really, really want to use and only had 2 patterns to decide from (this one and Butterick 5247). So here I am trying to make a decision and this review jumped up. With your detail, measurements, full hem pics and adjustments, it is done - this is next on my table. Thanks !!!!
11/24/13 10:04 AM
MrsCharisma said...
Aww, thanks Claire! B5247 is pretty cute with the cowl and they both have the same basic shape so I think you'll be doing great whichever you choose!
