Out of season

I found this rayon blend ponte at Remnant Warehouse recently, in a lovely navy and white print. I made Butterick 8056 again, but this time made the scoop neck into a more boaty number.


This fabric is so nice, it is thick but soft, and it drapes nicely. A frock I can't wear for months! Unless I take it as a tripfit to chilly Europe next month, of course.

Excellent fabric-pattern combo once again. I suppose I should post some of my sewing soon shouldn't I?

My sewing stash is too large to justify a trip to the Warehouse, but my this fabric is a find. Great fit and style.

Very flattering neckline, length, and fit. Beautiful job!

Holy crap is that a great dress. It doesn't even hint at being a vintage pattern, it looks totally modern. It also fits you perfectly.
