I want to make myself some summer around-the-house dresses for the hot, hot weather (it was 104 degrees yesterday). I wanted one that I could do a little embroidery on so it needed to have a yoke or similar feature. Here’s the pattern I decided on:
I like the fact that the dress is a little narrower than usually seen in a dress like this, and it has a nice little inset yoke to embroider or trim. Right now I am tracing it and doing the alterations, and changing the sleeve into a flutter sleeve. The sleeve on the “A” dress looks nice and loose doesn’t it?? The pattern piece is very small and narrow looking though, and a tight sleeve is right on top of the list of uncomfortable features. I’m going to try it out in a print or seersucker first before I embroider one.
I finished (for the time being) tracing and altering the blouse for A, and it is hanging in the sewing room waiting to be made into a muslin. A is coming home for the 4th, so maybe I can get something made for her to try on by then.
