Actually I am in the middle of other sewing (Cambrie dress, baby quilt and laptop bag), but I suddenly decided that I needed a red and white dress for a Canada Day BBQ.
So on Thursday lunchtime I went off to my local Fabricland and found some red and white striped fabric. They say copying is the sincerest form of flattery and I wanted a dress like the picture on the pattern!
When I got home, I downloaded the digital Hazel pattern from the Colette patterns website while I washed and dried the fabric. I have been following the Colette Pattern Sew Along on Sarah's Rhinestones and Telephones blog, and although I fell way behind in the previous Sew Along, I am on schedule with this one!!!
By the time I went to bed on Thursday I had pieced together the pattern and cut out the fabric. On Friday evening before I settled down to watch a movie I had sewn most of the dress together and then finished the facing and hem on Saturday morning.
I found it a very easy dress to sew. I am not 100% sure the pattern is for me though, maybe it is just because it is shorter than I normally wear, but on a hot day like today, less is better!
I will wear this later today to a casual BBQ and see how I feel in it. For $4/m I will say that this is my wearable muslin!
