More Dresses

I finished sewing my Felix dress. I love it! This was a challenging sew for me, but I did a good job. The pattern is rated as intermediate, and is lined. I learned a lot!

Pattern is Felix Dress by Grainline Studio. Fabric from Mood. Lining is teal Bemberg viscose. I was impressed with the lining fabric as well, and won’t be suspicious of viscose in the future. I love this design, and will probably sew a sleeveless version.

I sewed another Melba dress, this time in black cotton interlock from deep stash. I skipped the facings and bound the neckline, and prefer it. I hemmed the sleeves. This fabric is lightweight, and I expect I will wear this all summer with nude clog sandals. This was on my spring sewing list, so I’m glad to get this done.

I tend to do more sewing in spring and summer, and more knitting in fall and winter. What about you?

Wednesday: a WIP and a Win

I’m still plugging away on the Ocean Moon mystery knitalong, Clue 1. Clue 3 drops tomorrow! I hope to catch up this weekend. I am liking the yarn colors and the design. I’m getting the hang of intarsia again, though I’m slow.

I finished sewing my Melba dress. I feel very chic wearing it. It looks great with my clogs and sunglasses.

The fabric is organic cotton knit from Spoonflower. It says, “Born to Knit” and “Knitting Takes Balls.” I’m very happy with it. My only complaint is the boat neck is too wide. I’ll adjust that on the next one I sew.

Pattern is Melba Dress from Style Arc. This pattern also works with woven fabrics.

How are your WIPs coming along this week? Any wins?
