My everyday look tends to be a dress and a cardigan combination. So of course, what do I do? I make another dress. I bought this pattern, B6204 when it first came out. I really liked the many details of this one, the crossover bodice, waistband, interesting, yet subtle, hemline and of course…the pockets.
I had this rayon in my stash and I love the everyday wear ability of rayon. This one has a slightly heftier hand for rayon. I thought that the two suited each other for a good everyday dress. The dress went together quite easily and I like that it is self lined. I did have to tack the bodice together at the front, I found that it opened up a bit to much as I moved.
After I finished the dress, I let it hang on my dress form for a couple of days. I’m usually too impatient for that kind of proper sewing but I’m glad that I did for once…I had to re-cut the hemline quite a bit to even it out.
View from behind… I didn’t do so well at pattern matching the waistband did I? Hmm..
My closet is really filling up with dresses…and navy blue ones at that!! I MUST must start to add in some other pieces….on other colors!
Do you tend to make one type of garment more than others? Or are you really good at sewing a variety of things? Maybe Gillian’s dare will help me branch out… 🙂
