Finally, I succeeded at making something for the Summer Essentials Sew-Along! After a major sundress FAIL (aka: stripes that look like cartoon prison wear) I decided on a knit maxi dress.
Pattern: Simplicity 2219
Size I used: 12
Size I should have used: 8
Fabric: Rayon/Spandex jersey
Notable traits: an elastic under the bosom
Once again, I trusted the pattern and made a size that corresponds to my measurements (touting only a 1/2 in. ease). Result: an enormous dress. It may have been that the fabric is four-way stretch, but really people, c'mon. Here's a little America's Next Top Model pose for you:
And that's all folks! Check out the Summer Essentials Sew-Along! Some very cool clothes are going on... on the flickr site!
