I THANK AND PRAISE GOD FOR KEEPING ME ANOTHER YEAR!!!

This is another one of those fabrics that I had a hard time deciding what to make with.  It was a purchase from Fashion Fabrics Club a little over a year ago.  I ordered quite a few sweater knits at that time so I'm guessing this one may have been classified as such.  

I decided on View D.  I also like Views A and C.  This (c.2012) pattern is currently out of print.  Although it was the entire look of Dress C that drew me to it, I decided during construction that I would omit the elastic from the sleeves...no regrets. This view is described as "loose" fitting and I like that about it. 
I was a little short on fabric hence the directional change on the bodice front and back.  I didn't mind so much as I think it adds visual interest.  The collar/tie however is another story...
Don't get me wrong, I love the black contrast - but the cotton jersey, the only complimentary fabric that I had in stash - is a little too heavy for the dress fabric.  What would have been my first choice -and would have been perfect by the way - had already been used to line a different dress...just sayin'. 

Now if I could just tie the tie correctly I'd be in business.  This is quite the easy dress to make and dare I say "cute...to boot"!

Until next time.....PEACE AND BLESSINGS!!!
