So, I sewed the dress length version using the correct grain of this strange sweater fabric from Joann’s. Verdict, I love this dress but hate the pattern drafting. I encountered the same problems from my previous post when I made the top. The collar piece is like 10 inches too long and is way larger than the neckline. I double check the pattern and I did not make a mistake. I also used knit stay tape on the neckline and all bias edges, stabilized the shoulder seam with woven bias, and stay stitched neckline after cutting my fabric. I lengthened the sleeves as well.
I purchased a bunch of fabric using my Xmas gift certificates. I am trying to decide what to see next. I need warm pants and more long sleeve warm things. Maybe I will make a pant length version of the love notions summer caye shorts/culottes. Not sure what fabric to use as I want warm pants but the pattern calls for flowy fabric. I found somebody who used chambray. Maybe that will work?
I also got the Colette moneta pattern kit during craftsy’s clearance sale. And I have the love notions trendy tunic pattern all cut and ready to start. I can’t decide what to tackle next?
Hope your new year is off to a great start.
