This is a simple, easy lovely T-shirt dress. The fabric is a Mood navy/green ponte stripe.
After reading all the great reviews online for NewLook 6095, I decided it was time to try this out. I also have a really nice stripe stretch knit from Mood that just needed to find the right pattern match. The muslin is done showing me I need to think over the side seams and perhaps some sleeve changes. More to come…….
I entered a few items in the PatternReview StayHomeSaveLives Contest. This runs April 20th – May 31st.
It’s Tee Time – great weather to make an easy Tee
Fabric Source – fabric was from my stash. It is a stretch jersey fabric that was a challenge to keep from slipping away.
Pattern Source – This is “The Lavender Tee” from Mood Sewciety digital patterns.
Construction Tips – Double needle for hems and serger for seams. A quick 2-hour Tee.
Pattern Source: This is the Patternreview.com 103 – Winter Street Dress. I ordered the large print copy from their Copy Shop – this was a nice option.
Fabric Source: I made the dress in a black/white floral stretch from Mood Fabrics. This had been in the stash waiting to meet the right pattern.
Size I cut and changes I made: I cut an XL for the muslin, however I discovered a L was fine. I did not do the sleeve flounce since I felt it would have gotten lost in this busy fabric. I will do the flounce on the next one. The box pleats were easy to do and really make a nice impact at the waist.
I highly recommend this pattern, it was fast, fairly easy and the end product is nice looking and fitting.
I have made this summer dress before M6115 link. It is McCall’s M6115. The fabric, which is new for the Spring/Summer is from Joann Fabric. It is beautiful blue/purple peacock feather pattern – perfect for this summer dress.
This dress is easy to make and wears really well!
I am currently working on McCall’s M7681. I made a muslin front/back first since my measurements fell between 2 sizes. Then I made adjustments then cutting, marking, darts and lots of pressing done so far. I am excited to see how this turns out. The fabric is from Joann’s Fabrics and was part of the ever-growing stash.
Hand stitched the hem.
Fabulous Red Dress for Christmas
This dress is Butterick B6616. It is super comfortable and was easy to make. I used a 2-way stretch and sew/serge combination.
The fabric was similar to a waffle weave that I found at Joanne Fabrics. I will definitely make this one again.
The collar was my absolute favorite thing about this dress. It looks so sharp and was not difficult at all to make.
