Dude. I do go anywhere in this dress. I wonder why I haven’t shown you yet, because I wear it a ton.
It is the Sewn. Square One For Your Style Go Anywhere Dress. This is one of the first patterns I bought. I fell in love when I walked past it at my first time inside Pacific Fabrics. (Amazing store BTW, bring your credit cards…) I wasn’t too confident at the beginning so I started with some patterns made specifically for beginners. I wish I had made this sooner though because I am literally wearing it everywhere.
Its verging on the edge of being too short! But I kind of like it like that 🙂 It has super cute panels for color blocking! I really wanted to use the dark blue hand dyed quilting cotton, but I was having time finding another match without spending too much money$$. I ended up remembering a long lost navy jersey in my stash, so I made the rest in a knit fabric. I’ve never combined knits with woven fabrics so it was a bit of an experiment for me. So I’m happy that it worked out. I omitted the back zipper because the jersey gives it just enough stretch to sneak over my head. I don’t know how I’d like the sleeves in a woven fabric. They already feel a little bit awkward to me in a stretchy material so I don’t think I’d like them even stiffer. Maybe too much like robot arms. I think the darts in the sleeve at the elbow are a super cute detail though. I love the pockets but they go down a little too low that if I actually put something in them I have to bend down a little awkwardly to retrieve it. I LOVE the way they look though, so I don’t think I’d change them.
I’ve worn it here:
(a bonfire 🙂 !)
hahahahaha! I go there almost every day!
Cavalia’s Odysseo which was AWESOME!
