I know that I said that I was making a skirt next...and I will get to it but dresses are calling my name! *LOL* So the next three dresses are being made to work with cardigans that are presently in my closet. They are from fabrics that have been "hanging around" for some time and its now their to shine! Even before Michelle Obama began "highlighting" sheath dresses and cardigans, it was a very comfortable work outfit for me too.
A dress and cardigan allows you to look professional yet approachable at work. It allows you to move around, crawl under desks and move boxes around while being comfortable...plus it allows me to make a gament that I love to wear in some fabulous fabrics, colors and patterns.
Next up is this fabric:
It is a 100% acrylic boucle from fabric.com and it will become yet another version of my TNT dress pattern ~ specifically the Chadwicks version with short sleeves. I've loved this silhouette since I made my interpretation of it. So of course it was only a matter of time before a fall adaptation appeared.
This dress will be the second in the series. The first dress was the VOT Dress and there will be two more. Here is where I am after spending Sunday sewing.
There are still a couple of hours worth of work to be done before the dress will be finished. I also have some wonky neckline issues that I need to address:
But that will be next weekend...
...as always, more later!
