Magazine to Closet in 15 seconds flat

BWOF 02-2008-103B


At least that's how it felt. I nearly forgot I made this until I looked at my backlog of unpublished projects. I swear I wore it 17 times before the warm weather hit. I had major issues fitting the collar...perhaps I didn't cut the pattern properly. Either way no one could tell and it didn't stop me from wearing the bejeezus out of it. But isn't that just the way things happen sometimes....you fudge your way through a garment and love it to bits....so much so that all your close friends have probably seen you in it. But then you painstakingly sew a garment and it ends up collecting dust in the closet. C'est la vie!

I love that dress, the fit is great! What material is that, and is it a charcoal gray.

I'm glad you made this dress. I keep looking at this pattern wondering what it would look like on a real person...and the answer is GREAT!
