Another Easy Comfy Summer Dress

February was a glorious month weatherwise, (not too good for the farmers though).  Anyway I made another dress in the same style but fitted the back with two long darts.  Again I used Cotton Sateen bought from Fabric Vision and again it was easy peasy to sew. And congratulate me, I didn't use black!  Love this dress and since I already had the fitted toile, it was quick to make.  I put in a V-neck this time and edged the neck with satin bias binding.

It's so comfy.  I think its the slight stretch in the material that makes it so.  I've been wearing it with a short sleeved red cardie to barbeques and out shopping.

I would have to admit to being a bit of an impatient  sewer, simply because I want it finished so I can wear it.  But when I get like that I have now trained myself to put it down and come back to it another day.  Forcing myself  to make a toile was soooo worthwhile, I recommend it.

  1. This dress is great. I have one made in the same fabric but it looks so different. The fabric was also used in the World collection a year ago. I love it with the red cardi.
