Hey Boo!! Today I’m gonna do something a little bit different and greet you with an affirmation on this here Good Friday.. Here we go.. Feel free to read this out loud or repeat it a couple of times…
“Today I complete this week with love. I acknowledge my mistakes and let them go. I will keep the pearls of wisdom and leave the rest in the past. I carry no burdens into the future. Only freedom, joy, and love.”
I love affirmations, quotes, and mantras. I have my favorite ones saved and posted everywhere. I figured I would start sharing them! You never know when someone is having a bad day and a small word of hope or affirmation may change their mood. So onto the pattern review.
This is a “Very Easy Vogue” pattern that was fun to sew and even more fun to wear. This dress has back darts, kimono style sleeves, an 18 inch zipper going down the center back, asymmetric hemline, pleats at the front and on the belt/tie, and the neckline is finished with bias tape. lol Sounds like a lot, I know, but this is a great pattern to introduce you to some new and easy techniques.
I love the fact that this dress can be worn with tennis shoes or heels. I also love that its appropriate for work as well!
As always if you are doing this dress in a print be careful to match those up when cutting because this dress does have a center front and center back seam. This dress calls for about 4 yards of fabric. Since the bottom part of the dress is so big I wouldn’t do it in anything thicker than a cotton or lightweight linen type of fabric.
This dress is perfect for a daytime lunch, spring date, or work. This pattern also comes with a view to make the dress a shirt/tunic and a skinny pant. Overall I love the pattern, really fun, easy and perfect for spring!
Do you have this pattern in your stash? Have you made it before?
