July Fabric Mart Post: Seersucker in Summer

Check out my monthly blog post at Fabric Mart’s Fabricista Blog. This month I created another summer dress out of a designer seersucker from Fabric Mart. Read all about my epic fail on my original piece and how to avoid those mistakes in your projects.

Does it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were straight forward

Likes: The off the shoulder neckline and the casual feel.

Dislikes: none really, expect it may be a little too full.

Pattern alterations or any design changes made: I did a 2″ hem instead of the 4″ hem that was called for in the instructions.

Would I sew it again? Yes, this is my second one actually. I want to make the top.

Would I recommend it to others?   Yes

Conclusion: I really like they way it turned out!
