Completed: Sewaholic Yaletown: Coneflower Confection

Happy Friday! Have I mentioned how much I love Sewaholic patterns?

Because I am totally in love with Sewaholic patterns.

This is the Yaletown dress, though I made it without the sleeves…I made it out of a delicious coneflower rayon challis, and it was intended for hothothot weather…so no sleeves.

This dress is fairly easy to throw together, and as always, Tasia’s instructions taught me something new. In this case, it was elastic casing. Tasia’s method is probably standard fare, but I read over the instructions before starting the casing and laughed aloud. “Genius!” I exclaimed. I had never thought to use the seam allowance as the casing!.

So, yeah, I’ve been wearing this dress a lot. It’s super comfortable right out of the package (I DID have to do an SBA, but I always have to do one of those, so I hardly count it anymore), super flattering, and feminine without being ultrasweet. When I wore this dress the first time, a girl came up to me and said, “Can I just say? I don’t like your dress. I’m DROOLING over it.”

DSC_0014  It’s such a flowy, airy, comfortable style that I want to make another two or three and have it be a wardrobe staple–but it’ll have to wait until I can save up a little money and find a similarly good rayon challis. I have access to a wide variety of rayons at my workplace (woot woot independent fabric stores!) but they’re relatively transparent and I don’t like wearing bras.

What?

DSC_0009  I have another few dresses I’ll post about over the next week…stay tuned!
