Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

StyleArc Lucy Dress!

Ruffles are everywhere this spring and I have had this dress and fabric for a few months now.  I was waiting for the right time to make it because as soon as I had it done, I knew I'd want to make it!

Knit dress with fashionable double frill neck trim

How cute is this dress?  The pattern is from StyleArc and is the Lucy Knit dress.

                  

I just love the fabric.  It was a kit from Craftsy. It was super easy and awesome to work with.  It wasn't a wimpy knit at all but had some body, drape, and stability to it.
Does that make any sense?


I made a test garment and decided I needed an FBA, swayback adjustment and sloping shoulder adjustment.  


I also made the sleeves somewhere between bracelet and 3/4 length.  


There is a lot of shaping with this pattern.  If you purchase it and have taken it from the package, you will know what I mean.  


Wow, do I love how this fits!  




I used my rolled hem on my serger for the ruffles.  I am still working on getting a magnificent finish.  My finish is pretty good, but dang it, I want magnificent.  I just need to practice more.

I really love this dress.  I wore it today and received many compliments!

Thanks for reading!  I love your comments!

  2. Wonderful! It just looks like spring and fun, and you look so happy wearing it. What a great happiness injection. I love when something I sew does that for me. Such pretty fabric - I've picked up some nice ones from Craftsy this winter as well. Hope they re-stock soon...

  9. If black off shoulder dress keeps women a sense of mystery.Then pink lace dress shows the neat and pure of a girl.
