St. Louis, Misso...
I was a pattern tester for the lovely Rachel Pinheiro for her new upcoming pattern Brasilia. It is a wonderfully built pattern with so much potential for variation – I just loved it. I had to grade it down myself and I know the back is not quite perfect – I should have made a muslin first but I was too excited to have something wearable.
I have worn the dress out a few times now and it is so comfortable. I am planning on doing a few more of these with different ideas on the side panels – I just love the versatility of this pattern.
Mid-weight poly knit (it is from my stash and somehow lost its label)
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
