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.
