Jalie 3463–Anne-Marie Dress

June 16, 2017   /   byDawn  / Categories :  Feeds

I’ve made this pattern up in a top before and I really like it and wear it often in the summer I was wearing it on vacation just last week. I kept putting things in that enormous back pocket. Like my phone, lip balm, tickets, car keys, etc. I know it’s supposed to be for tennis balls, but whatever. I realized that a dress version would be just the ticket on vacation. So, when I got home from vacation, I made one for my next vacation.


I did not make this, just so we are all clear, for a sport use. I made this purely for a travel/fun purpose. The CF/CB panels are made with a fun ivory/black scuba knit. The solid black is a Nike Dri-Fit fabric.

I love how the side panels flare out a bit for an a-line shape.

This is what photoshoots in my house always look like, by the way. Little photobombers just waiting to jump into view.

I love how it looks like I matched the pocket on the back. I didn’t. That was luck. I love the back on this dress.

Oh, and this dress has a built-in shelf bra which is actually pretty supportive. I love that about a travel dress too.

I love how big this pocket is. I may have to make another one of these dresses in a solid color just because comfort and pockets.

I will also wear this to work with a jacket or cardigan. And I’m talking to my daughter here. She’s a sassy beast.

EBONY TEES AND SEAMLY CARDI IN MERINO JERSEY

This was my second year as a counselor at Camp Workroom Social and I was determined to be smarter in the wardrobe department than I was last year. I wanted clothing that was practical, stylish, comfy and interchangable. I already knew that I was bringing one pair of shoes (some back lace up boots which were much better than the heeled ones I wore last year) so everything needed to go with those and jeans. My color palette would be black (no surprise there), gray, white, blue, and camel. These really are the colors I wear all year long anyways. I am such a sucker for neutrals. This gave me the perfect excuse to sew up a few new things. After thinking about the criteria above, I settled on the Ebony tee in the cropped length and the Seamly Wrapped Cardigan which I had sewn up last year and loved. As for fabric choice, that was easy. I loved working with the merino wool jersey last year from The Fabric Store. They carry the perfect colors for my taste, plus the merino jersey feels so luxurious while still being washable. The perfect fall fabric in my book. I ended up […]
