Today, both myself and Lauren
are the last stops of Sew Caroline
new dress pattern tour: Out and About
dress. This is her first pattern, designed for the everyday wear.
You know, comfortable enough to run errants but still look put together to meet girls for lunch, shopping etc. A great change from my jeans & sweater combo.
This is my first time sewing a knit jersey dress baby doll style. It’s really out of my comfort zone style-wise.
Altho other shapes suits my body better, this dress is so easy to wear and I really like the contrasting elements.Using two different types of knits gave the dress a fun separate feel.
I have sewn a straight size M, knee high and long sleeves with the cuffs. The instructions are very clear to follow, with photos of every step.
I stabilise all my knit dresses at the shoulders with clear elastic. Next time I will stabilised the pockets.
Don’t you love pockets? Contrasting colour pockets only have one issue. They are a bit visible from the side.
The only change on the pattern design was lowering the neckline by a few cm.
I’m so ready for spring….
