Work Week Drape Drape

San Francisco Ba...






It’s Monday, and that means time for a work-week dress. Last time you saw this pattern, it was in the form of a flannel shirt, so this is a little different take on the design (though probably a little closer to the pattern maker’s original intent). I had a few problems making this dress, including my serger going through all the layers and my lack of good fabric layout. Besides the fact that I had to cut the sleeves in two pieces, they were much more loose than I expected. I took them in, but they look best rolled up. Overall it was an easy, quick dress to make if you already have the pattern pieces cut out.

    This is really classy .. & so versatile … I know that in Qld, it will be perfect in Autumn, Spring & mild winter days with tights … & I adore the way the side drapes turning into a side pocket …! You’ve done a terrific job of this & shold feel a million dollars when you wear it. I know I would!! :)

      well, maybe it helped that it was my second time around. and cutting out the pattern pieces takes a little effort

      just the sleeves were baggy and needed to be modified. you also could gather or belt the waist…
