Do I ever feel better!
I wasn’t willing to go through the weekend agitated by my setback and got back to work, but first things first.
When I turned on my computer yesterday morning I knew immediately that a positive experience had emerged from my unsuccessful New Look dress project.
The kind comments from my Goodbye Valentino followers and Pattern Review friends truly lifted my spirits sending me back to the sewing machine.
Thank you so much – You are absolutely wonderful.
As you can tell I wasn’t about to sew another too tight dress and erred on the side of generosity. I bought this...
So excited to sew knits on my new machine I bought the following pattern. I love the simplicity of this little dress and decided to try it out with a rust cotton knit from my stash before cutting my new Missoni fabric. I wanted to create a simple prototype for the many knit dresses I will be making this year. Since the dress was described as close fitting I cut out the pattern two sizes larger than my measurements indicated, knowing it would be too big.

I could barely squeeze into this thing even with my industrial strength...
