Ottobre sewalong Funny Faces Dress Done

Are you participating in the Ottobre Sewalong at sewalong over at SewMcCool?  I finished my Funny Faces dress and here it is!  I thin it turned out great!

The top is made from Fresh Produce Floral Circles jersey knit.  It has a slight bit of stretch to it so I cut the binding bits a tad longer than recommended. I knew they would need the extra length since they don't have much stretch to them. Had I not cut them longer, they would not have pulled nicely and they would have created a wavy neckline. 


I made view B, with a woven cotton skirt.  The skirting is Jennifer Paganelli Lucky Girl Maggie in green.  The colors go so nicely together!  

See how nice the neckline looks!  I am quite proud of this one!

 This pattern has sleeves that are slightly bell shaped. They come to a gentle gather and cuff and have binding to cover the gathering.  It creates a lovely fullness.  I think it turned out quite nicely.

The pattern was simple to follow and cut out and I enjoyed putting it together. As usual, I highly recommend Ottobre patterns for the advanced beginner seamstress on up.  They are a tad too complicated, lacking in complete directions, for a beginner.  


  1. This looks really nice! :) For some reason when you posted your fabric choice I thought they would be the other way around. I wasn't paying any attention which was knit and which not. :) I hope your miss likes it.

  2. This came out great! Nicely done.

  3. Does your website have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating it but, I'd like
    to send you an email. I've got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
