Look at those lines!
This is a close-fitting dress that you want a hefty knit for. The black is a beefy ponte I purchased a ton of when Hancock's went out of business last summer and the black/white is a fun textured knit I purchased from Fabric Mart. I love both of them!
You really want to get a good fit throughout for this to skim the body instead of feeling like a sausage in a casing. I prefer not to look like, or feel like I am a sausage.
I made my usual swayback adjustment, FBA, and sloping shoulder adjustment.
I tried this on before hemming the sleeves. I let them out a bit as I thought they were very slightly short.
Isn't the contrast fun? It was easy to sew, line up your seam lines, and seems to be well drafted.
I love this dress!
