Description

Same double knit as the exposed seam raglan top, only the other side ;o)

I am so pleased with this dress! Though, I wish it were about an inch or so longer. If I was more careful with my hem, or if I used a rolled hem, it would have been perfect.

I used the Lydia pattern again. I really should show how I adapted the pieces. I looked closely at the pattern today and the sizing is all over the place. Small at the shoulders and neckline, extending out to different sizes at the hips on the front and back and different front and back shoulder seam heights.

    I really like it! It looks comfortable, but classic and versatile.

    My list for fall sewing includes a solid double-knit dress. I wouldn’t have thought to use the Lydia pattern.

      Thanks! The Lydia pattern is so versatile. I’ve used it nearly 10 times for various projects already.
