Hey Ya’ll (as Sew Caroline would say)! I am so excited to share this project with you today! I was lucky enough to pattern test Sew Caroline’s first ever sewing pattern, the Out and About Dress!
Caroline describes this dress as designed for, “….the everyday lady with one million errands to run, a house to keep clean, and a job to finish”. She couldn’t have described this dress more perfectly. It’s easy to sew, easy to wear, easy to style, easy to dress up, and easy to dress down! I just love it!
The dress comes with the options of knee length or maxi, long sleeve or elbow, and an optional cuff. I sewed up the size small and it fits perfect. This is the first time my bust, waist, and hips all fell exactly in one size….must be a sign I was meant to test this dress! I used a medium weight knit with a nice drape. I purchased it at my local fabric shop, Five Eighth Seams, probably over a year ago. I just love the color so much that I have been holding onto it forever waiting for the right project.
The directions are very clearly written and easy to follow, making it a great beginner knit sewing project.
You can read all about the dress over at SewCaroline’s blog and snag a copy for yourself…..that is if you don’t win a copy of it during the awesome giveaway Caroline is generously offering to one of my readers! Click on the rafflecopter link below and good luck!
Congrats on releasing your first pattern Caroline! Keep designing! I know everyone will love this pattern just as much as I do.
