A Dress

A few weeks ago, while Caleb was taking his SAT test, Mickael and I went to the outlet mall.  I found a knit dress at the Columbia shop (yes, the outdoor gear people), and while I didn't bother to try it on at the time, I could tell it would fit, and worst case scenario, I could just wear it around the house.  When I got it home and tried it on IT WAS SO CUTE!  It has enough shape to not look like I'm wearing a sack, or a sleep shirt, but it's loose enough that you can't tell if I just ate an ice cream cone.  Perfect summer dress!  I would have gone back right then and gotten the other colors it came in (I only bought the black) except they were colors I can't wear.  As I was looking at it, I realized it would be simple enough to trace and make my own pattern.
So that's what I did.  Once I had my pattern made and added seam allowances, I cut it out in an inexpensive heather gray cotton stretch knit and it worked!  The original had a shirt-tail hem which I didn't do.  I just did a plain skirt hem, but otherwise it's a pretty exact copy.  Now that I've tested it, I'm ready to make a few in some prints.  Also, I'm ready for ice cream!

It's cute and it allows for stealth ice cream consumption?! THE summer dress. Look forward to seeing your own versions.
