Perfect timing on this sew out because of Shade of Me is running over at House of Mouse and Petit a Petit. Maybe just reading about their sew-a-long gave me the motivation I needed to jump on the "me sew" train. Go check out this fun sew-a-long because they are doing a blog hop with different colors each day through February 14th.
My thoughts on the pattern? I know the pattern called for a drapy fabric for the body but I had to try it with this mini navy chevron and I am very pleased with it. Might be a hair stiff but just like any other cotton dress. The fit is fabulous. I couldn't selfie my back but there is no elastic, zippers, or buttons so that's always a bonus when sewing. I learned a new technique of finishing the edges with bias tape. I really loved the results! I'm going to brag here but my legs look awesome. I've been on this paleo diet and I can so tell by looking at my calves that I'm loosing some weight. Yeah!
I will be sure to post some better photos from my weekend photo shoot. I'm going to get a sample of a top done as well.
