It is my official submission to Cindy's dress week sew-along! I do think I sewed this during the right week, but haven't posted till now.
A few notes about the dress:
- I sewed the size 6 and took 1.5" vertically from center front and back, for a total bust circumference reduction of 3". It is not as beautifully blousy (or is it blouson-y) as Kyle's, but mine has 1" of ease as hers does.
- It took a looooong time to cut out, because of the slipperiness of this knit -- some sort of rayon/ poly blend, and very thin -- and because I really wanted to line up those stripes. They lined up pretty well along the side seams and even the pockets.
- The pattern envelope proclaims "1-hour dress" sewing time only, but this took me about 2.5 hours, and the hem (not pictured) was sewn pretty hastily. The two steps that dragged out were double-roll hemming the armholes, made more challenging because of the slippery fabric, and inserting elastic into the waist, 'cause it just takes me longer.
