I want to share my second (but not last Rivermont). I really like the style of this dress and I received lots of complements on this print. This is a Liverpool knit from Fabric.com, I purchased it at a steal for $3.83, I know right! This fabric was sold at seven yard increments so I kept checking on it and one day while I was looking for white fabric for my classic white button up, there was four yards left, score! This dress cost me $10!!! Now, sewing isn't always cheaper than buying but in this instance, it was not only cheaper, it was better because it fit like a glove and I made it!
I didn't change anything from this version however, when I make this again, I will add about two inches to the hem, make the sleeves 3/4" and I may add side seam pockets. I think I want to convert the darts to princess seams, they are my favorite darts and, why not? Also, I'm not feeling the bulky facing, I may self line the bodice.
|I think midi length will be cute too.|
Ok, that's it for me, until next time, oh, question, what's your favorite, with or without the belt?
