Well, here is another version of this dress that has me just loving this pattern. In fact, I've loved this dress so much that I truly feel like a million bucks wearing it. I was a tad bit worried when I cut this out as the print is so big and it feels a bit tropical, but honestly, I really love it when I wear it and I get compliments. What isn't to love?
This fabric is from Fabric dot com. It is a Telio knit. I simply love Telio knits. They feel marvelous on your skin, wash beautifully, and wear terrifically...is that a word?
I didn't take in the front and back waist darts in this dress as I like it body skimming not fitted, if that makes sense. You can see below the other simple modification I made. Instead of the sewn down the center V-neck band, I made an overlapping neck band. I like this much better than how the pattern is designed.
I plan on making this dress many more times. I simply feel like a million bucks in it!
Here you can see the stretch stitch I used for the hemline. I used this at the sleeve hems as well.
Thanks for reading!
