As usual, when I saw the Sew Weekly Make This Look feature a few months ago, I wanted to make the featured dress. This time, it was the Rally the Loops Dress.
I ran out and picked up the pattern and fabric. I wasn't really sure how I was going to do the pockets, but I was so eager to start on the dress that I really didn't even want to think about it. By the time I got to the pockets, I decided to just do them as they were shown on the pattern.
Fabric: Tan and black synthetic blend
Pattern: Simplicity 2588
The good thing about the design, was that I could just do the basic pattern with the smaller neckline. I omitted the optional side tabs and went with the full skirt. I just cut out some extra black fabric to make the black bow, that I then stitched to the front neckline.
This dress is the first of my Fall palette challenge. I didn't put a little montage together like I did the Colette Spring challenge, but I picked out my fabrics and have pulled aside potential patterns. Overall I hope to make:
- 3 dresses
- 1 skirt
- 1 blouse
- 1 jacket/capelet
Possibly: 1 pair of pants (Clover)
Oh, and this was Day 18 of Self-Stitched September.
