With the weather yoyo-ing back and forth from hot to cold, I have been on a kick sewing for Spring. My new dress, The Sunny Day Dress is no exception. Based off of the Salme Sewing Patterns' Sleeveless Dress pattern, I accomplished the most daring, comfortable dress that can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats and a belt.
Size Made: I used the measurement guide provided by Salme and cut a size 6 in the pattern with no adjustments prior to cutting/sewing.
Fabric: This fabric was screaming at me from across JoAnn's! Normally, I don't go in the quilting section, but this cotton practically jumped in my shopping cart and onto the cutting counter. The pattern called for 2 yards of 45" W fabric. However, I had to go back for more fabric because after prewashing, it shrunk A LOT and I didn't have enough width left to cut the pattern pieces. If you use the quilting cotton for this, I would suggest taking home about 2 1/2 yards of fabric for the size 6 just to be on the safe side.
