Whew! (click Like if you feel the same way)
On the First Day of Christmas my true love gave to me…….
On the Third Day of Christmas I found myself alone,
Which meant by the Fourth Day of Christmas I had made a new dress.
Would you believe my husband said of all the dresses I’ve made, this is his favorite?
This dress was s o e a s y to make that it belongs in a different category from the dress projects requiring blood, sweat and tears. I know why hubby likes the dress so much, but if I was more experienced in sewing knits he would like it even better because it would fit far more snugly.
The dress pattern, Vogue 8742 is described as close-fitting.
Being a novice with knits, I was fearful it would be too tight, and cut the pattern a size larger. What a mistake! Although the viscose/spandex fabric was easy to work, the dress fits looser than intended – even after sewing extra large seams.
Read my pattern review HERE.
With two and a half more days left in the holiday season, I can cheerfully enjoy a couple of indulgences in my colorful dress with the loose and forgiving fit.
More on that later.
