First let me tell you that I did not finish the simple little dress. See I told you I wasn't much in the mood to sew this weekend, *smile*! But I wanted to show you the fabric and tell you a little about the dress.
Pattern first: Simplicity 4093
Misses'/Women's Skirt, Pants, Jacket and Dress or Top
The suggested fabrics for this pattern are ~ lightweight wool and wool blends, lightweight tweeds, sueded silks/rayons, silk linen, linen and linen blends, challis, crepe, crepe back satin, shantung, matte jerseys, lightweight pique, lightweight poplin and brocade. I bought this pattern last summer and I wanted to make several of the pieces. I almost made the jacket and pants last fall but as usual other things came into play and pushed this one out of the way.
2 yards of a rayon knit from Metro Textiles. I bought this fabric back in May when I went to Metro Textiles with Karla. I originally thought that I wanted a top from this fabric but when I saw it laying on top of one of the piles this afternoon I thought why not?!
I don't think this dress is suppose to be made using a knit. But that's how I saw it. So I made some basic alterations to the pattern, cut it out and sewed the dress up. I tried it on and realize that I have some simple alterations to do to the dress to make it fit better. But I am just really not in the mood ~ so here is where I left the dress:
I know, I know more hanger shots! But this is the best I can do right now. I am sure that I will have an update next weekend. It's just suppose to be a simple knit dress that I can wear on those really hot days when nothing else works! And that's all the sewing I did this weekend...Can you believe it? *LOL*
