Description

I’m excited to share my latest creation with you all! I just completed my Mash Up for our Long Sleeve A-Line Dress pattern where I added a little flounce and eliminated the darts into a panel seam along the armholes. The fit of this dress is relaxed, but I wanted it a bit cinched at the waist so I paired it with a belt here. In the future I may decide to add an elastic casing along the back waistline.

I love the fabric just as is, so I know I would love anything I sewed from it. The bright blue mesh brings some dimension to the garment and adds a little “pop”. For this weather I’ll wear some nice tights and boots with a leather jacket and in the spring I’ll take off the sleeves!

    Looks very different from the magazine’s. As if the dress fills you with energy, it attracts attention indeed.
