Sunny Day to All,
Hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday. I actually made this dress yesterday morning and decided to wear it today since I was headed out with hubby. This pattern is Simplicity 8174 by the lovely MimiG. I really love her patterns. Of course, we made sure to squeeze in a photoshoot so I may share this beautiful dress with you guys today. I got both sweater knits a long time ago and can't remember where exactly. I figured I would play around with the colors and I must admit that I am in love with the final product. This dress is so comfortable. I kindly like the way MimiG styled it so I duplicated the look. I chose to dress it up today but I could easily rock it with some sneakers. Enjoy these few pics.
About the Pattern
I love MimiG Patterns. This one was very easy to sew. I cut a size 12 but I could have easily cut a 10 if I wanted it to be a little more fitted. The instructions were cleared and there is a step by step video for this pattern if needed. The only alterations were because I personally have a short torso and I am petite, so I removed about 6 inches from the length of the dress and placed the front pocket about 2 inches higher then indicated in the instructions. Other than that, the final piece was very pleasing to my eyes and hopefully to yours as well. Happy Sewing to you!
