With a RTW cardigan from my closet
This fabric was purchased from Emmaonesock about five years ago. She sold alot of this polyester knit in various colors and prints. This is one of the few pieces I had left in the fabric closet because the fabric started to gain a reputation for being a little too warm for the wearer. But it works great for this pattern and I think this is my best rendition so far. I really like the way this latest dress hangs and wore it this morning to church services.
I did do a couple of things differently with this one. Both the top piece and the back piece have a center back seam. This was necessary because of the amount of fabric I had to work with. The hem is pressed up with stitch witchery and then stitched down with a twin needle. Finally, the armhole opening is a little lower which stops some of the pulling at the bustline that I was experiencing with the other two versions.
When I finished the second version, I knew there would be a third because I really wanted one out of a floral knit. I thought I would have to purchase the fabric but I took a gander at the fabric closet and was very pleased to find this one.
One more shot...
So you're wondering where's the B5600 dress right? Well the buttonholes are made and it's just waiting for me to sew the buttons on. I will do that this evening.
Speaking of Mother's Day, I'd like to wish all mothers and mothers-to-be a very Happy Mother's Day! May your day be filled with family, joy and love!
