Description

This was a very special project and one of my favorite dresses I have made. It has been a blast and honor writing my Pattern Play Column in Sew News Magazine and my last project for the magazine was to make our popular Fancy Pocket Dress pattern and it was featured on the cover! I need to also talk about this amazing fabric I found and used, I was walking around in Toronto’s fashion district and spotted this print through the window of a fabric store. Knowing that I had to make this particular pattern I instantly knew the fabric would be perfect with those skirt pleats and pockets.

Within the column in this issue I cover altering the pattern to use with a knit fabric as well as three different sleeve modifications. Inside the magazine you’ll also get a special coupon code to get the pattern at a discount! Subscribe to the magazine here and never miss an issue of my pattern play column.

    Hello Meg, this dress is absolutely gorgeous! I am curious about the name of the store where you bought the fabric :) And also the fabric featured in the Tropical jumper dress post ;)

    Cheers! Anna

      Hi Anna! Thank you so much. I bought both of those fabrics in Toronto fashion district. This landscape fabric is from Leos Textiles on Queen St. and then my tropical fabric was from King Textiles on Spadina. Aren’t they amazing fabrics?

      Best,
      Meg

    Meg you look fabulous. This is one of my most favourite looks on you and you are rocking it. Everything looks spot on and don’t get me started on pattern matching and pockets as well!! You did a great job. The photo’s do show you love the dress and that’s why you’ve got your position in burda..you can inspire other sewers which is what we can hope to aspire to. Beautiful job xx
