Description

my hot little hands held a copy of pattern magic, and my wee little brain ran in terror at the math. so i eyeballed the twisted dress pattern, drew what i thought it should look like… and came up with one of the few solid dresses in my closet. i’m pretty proud of myself; in case you can’t tell from my bratty pose :)

this jersey feels sooooo good, it actually stays cool in summer heat, yet it’s heavy enough to wear over jeans. this is staying in the closet year round. when i asked my fabric guy what kind of jersey it is, he said: “jersey.” oh. that kind. i’m dying to know what type it is!

    You have a scrap of the jersey left you could do a “burn test” to see if you can identify its main components. Check out this chart (Sciencey!) http://www.ditzyprints.com/dpburnchart.html

    So pretty. I love the colour, the design…and the fact your fabric guy is cut and dry. Hilarious.

      he is the definition of dry! he raised his eyebrows at my question, as if i might be a bit reading-is-fundamental…

    Eyeballing is the best! It’s a gorgeous dress! If you’ve made something in a solid I must make something in a print ;-) Home to sew I go (it might be black and white, though). Lol, communicative fabric guy (not).

    I have Pattern Magic I and II (unfortunately not in English) and I was just looking through them yesterday, trying to get inspired. Haven’t tried anything yet but your “eyeballin” looks pretty darn good! LOVE the fabric in the background! Info please???
