I cut out this sweater knit a few weeks ago but hadn't had time to make it up yet. With our weather turning more fall like, I've been wanting a few dresses like this one: easy to wear, cute, can be warmed up with tights and boots and even a jacket. SPR is also having a sweater knit contest and I am entering this dress in that as well!
This is a Cynthia Rowley pattern for Simplicity.
What drew me to it are those darling little sleeve vents. Aren't they cute? Well, you can see from my finished dress that even though I cut those out with the intention of making them, I didn't like how they looked in my fabric nor did I like where they landed on my arm.
This dress can be sewn up in an hour and with only four/five pieces to cut, the entire thing from start to finish is an afternoon/evening project.
My alterations are simple: FBA and swayback adjustment.
I love this dress and can't wait to wear it! Pick a fun fabric and this dress will shine!
Thanks for reading!
