My personal style is changing rapidly. I don’t know if it’s age or circumstance or season, but I’ve gone from wearing mostly jeans to mostly dresses. They are a millions times more comfortable! How was I not aware of this before?
I’ve been looking at my Pinterest boards trying to draw inspiration. I wanted to pair these two dresses for a simple high-low hem tank dress.
I used the bodice of Simplicity 2497 and made it into it dress. After making all of the alterations and a quick muslin, I laid the pattern onto the fabric I wanted to use – a black and white ikat from B&J Fabrics. I was INCHES short and couldn’t bring myself to change the pattern at all.
But I’m glad that happened because it forced me to dig through my stash! I found a striped cotton that I prefer for this dress anyway.
I used my walking foot to help with the chevron alignment. The bodice sides and all of the center seams are about spot on.
It’s all done, so I just need to get pictures. YAY!
