M6752 | Printed Knit Dress


Happy Hump-day Lovelies!!!


I believe I picked this pattern up in 2013, with the full intention
of making this shirt!



 I still plan to make this top real soon, because that gathered zip
 thing is soo Boss!!


But once I started cutting all the pieces out, I realized the dress looked 
really cute and only had a few pieces to sew up!


I've been passing over this crinkly knit fabric, that's been in my stash
closet for years. I can't remember where I got it, but its sheer, stretchy
 and I had just enough for this dress.


It didn't take much time to sew up, no fba was needed, I  could've
lengthened it, but hey... I wanted to sew and go!! lol


I used clear elastic around the neckline, so it could lie flat. The shoulders were lightly gathered and the bodice actually has a lot of ease, kinda blousey in the bodice area, so I was unsure if or what
size belt to wear with it!  Because I am not about to readjust
the fullness in no way!!


 I forgot to add my usual length adjustment, so out the envelope it's kinda short on me, but I improvised...


I lined the skirt with a thin jetset knit from Handcock's, and
did a rolled hem treatment to make up for that short hem.
Worked out fine!


I'm pretty satisfied with the overall turnout, the mishaps were very minor and 
I get a lot of wear out of this one, with a pair of sandals.

M6752 for reference
Till my next post,
C-ya!!!
