A dress for autumn

Added Oct 4, 2017

As soon as I saw this fabric I knew which dress I was going to make with it. I have such a backlog of things to make it’s ridiculous.
The dress came together easily and the only adjustment I made was taking off an inch and a half on both sides of the back seam to fit my figure better, still contemplating on adding the belt loops and making a belt.

      Thanks a lot. So much to sew and so little time I think quite a few of us have that problem. :-)

    Lol! Is that your puppy? I love pets. Your dress is so nice. It’s nice to have a long sleeve for sure. Also is that plant for real? I have been trying to grow on for years! Wow, such a lovely post. Good stuff:-)

    I love your dress! It’s comfy, easy to wear and flattering! I think that a tiny belt would look good but belt loops aren’t really necessary (I didn’t make them either). My new sewing list, from August to October Burdastyle issues, already contains 10 garments and I’m still working on patterns pending from last year…

      Thank you Elpida, you’re right it is super comfy, thanks for the tip on the belt, my problem at the moment is it is still 24 degrees here so i have gone back to sewing a few lighter items. But not complaining it stops my buying more winter fabric :-)

    I love the dress and thanks for reminding on the pattern! Now I have the urge to make it, just after I make a dozen other things…

    What a really lovely dress. I too have a long list of stuff to make and the fabric to make them with! If only I wasn’t so busy with work. Oh, and making my wedding dress! :) PS cute pooch x

      Thank you, Ms B. Yes, it’s been a long time coming – 26 years, would you believe? But we thought we ought to get on with it before we get too old :)
