I thought this fabric was fun and looked like the fabric chosen for the pattern example.  I’d like to expand more classic and basic elements of my wardrobe.  And “the little black dress” is definitely a basic essential.  I bought enough fabric to do a dress and to do pants.  I wanted some basic pieces that worked with a lot of other items I already own.

The pattern was easy to assemble and easy to tailor.  I took in 6 of the seams from the bust to the hip.


The fabric is a knit with a shine on it.  It had quite a bit of structure so it was really fun to work with.

The result . . . to die for.


How about one more pic that’s a bit artsy for fun?


Pretty sure I’m wearing this everyday forever.  Love it!

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
