Thank god for Black Friday sales. Honestly It has taken a significant chunk out of my future buys list that weekend. This pattern being one of them that has lingered on their for a while. I bought this along with both versions of the Toaster jumper. Both of which I cant wait to make.
This is obviously more of a summer pattern. But I really wanted to see it made, to see if it suited me being plus size. so I used some basic bulk white I had to make one up as a test run. What I have ended up with is probably the most perfect little holiday dress ever. One that, as is, I will definitely wear and definitely make more of.
So How did It Sew?:
The graphics on the pattern instructions are beautiful, simply laid out and easy to follow. The actual make was so simple to put together, but still looks great on. What I love about this pattern is how it has a ready made feel about it. Something I strive to achieve in my sewing is not looking like I am wearing me made clothing, almost like i am bridging the gap from store bought to me made and proving it is sustainable with fashion. And this type of good basic pieces to throw on in summer do just that.
Another thing I love the name Sew house 7, to me it sounds like the title of a Quinton Tarantino movie, so I just think its amazing.
I am definitely making more of these for the better weather, I now have a similar black fabric so I can make another good basic for my wardrobe. I think some sort of lace panel in the back would look amazing too, and maybe give the dress a bit more support in shape.
