Hey y'all! I'm back with a review from pattern designer, none other than Cynthia Rowley. Can we just say that I am a true fan girl, like seriously! I love, love her design aesthetic'; her designs are so fresh and now, right?!
PR this year, too. This is a simplistic pattern, as there are only three pattern pieces, yes, only three, so major score! You have your front, back and the sleeve pattern pieces; that is if you are doing view A. View A, is the view that I made. I made this is in a medium at the bust and graded to a large at the hip down. BIG mistake, big! This design is intended to have a lot of ease, but man, the ease is astounding,lol!
However, the ease is printed on the pattern sheet, so that was my bad :)..
For my next version, I will make the entire dress, or top in a medium. I added 4" to the front and back pieces, because these pattern is designed to be relatively short. However, I've been on this uneven hem or "handkerchief" kick lately, so this dress has a slight "handkerchief" hem like my previous Cynthia Rowley pattern.
A little inside action.. ( I took this on my phone camera, so the color
isn't as vibrant :(...)
I knew at first glance that I had to have this dress, and with seeing this type garment everywhere in the RTW. I knew I needed my own. I used a avocado green linen fabric, that I purchased from Fabric Mart fabrics during one of their many great sales.

I hope you all are having a fantastic week, filled with plenty of sewing!
~Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce! Candice
