Capsule Wardrobe Addendum

Yes. There isn't enough stuff I want to sew. MOAR ON PLATE, PLEEEEZE!

Pattern Description:
Crepe: A sweet and easy wrap dress with no closures to sew. The dress wraps in back and has cap sleeves. The wide ties encircle the waist for a comfortable dress with a fitted look. Version 1 has a rounded neckline, while Version 2 has a shaped sweetheart neckline and waist ties in a contrasting fabric.

Fabric Used:
Two different 100% cottons


4, version 1.

Modification Advice/Errors in Pattern:

Alterations Done:
As soon as I found out that this dress didn't have any closures, I knew it was the perfect candidate for my ridiculous, over-the-top unicorns and rainbows fabric. So, reversible it is! That was a simple fix. Just substitute the facings for your secondary fabric and sew away. FYI: you still only need two waist ties.

Would I Sew this Again?:
Yes! Fast and cute and no closures!

My Favourite Things About it:
How I entirely overlooked this pattern for ages because I didn't envision it without the sweetheart neckline (I know, the scoop neck is RIGHT THERE on the pattern front.) When I saw Ysolda's version, which also happens to be in quilting cotton, I had that urge you get when you want it NOW and went out the next day to buy the pattern.
Also, I appreciate that Colette sizes their patterns for a C cup rather than a B. I still should do an FBA, but it's less work.
