I’m finally catching up on blogging all of the makes from my fall sewing plans. This is the only dress of the bunch. It’s my second version of NewLook 6123. The first version was my dissertation proposal defense dress.
Here’s the first item from my fall “collection.” This is the Terry Tie Cardi from Style Arc, and I love it.
One day last month I woke up with a crazy idea: “I think I’ll make a dress to wear to dinner tonight.” Brandon and I had reservations at the nice French restaurant in town, and I wanted a new dress to wear for the occasion. Enter the Davie Dress by Sewaholic!
This dress checks so many boxes: Easy to make? Check! Flattering? Check! Comfortable? Check! Versatile? Check! This is the Davie Dress by Sewaholic.
Over the weekend, I graduated with my PhD, a perfect excuse to make a new dress. I was lucky enough to have my best friend and fellow sewist Nicole graduate with me. Together we made “reverse bridesmaid dresses” for the occasion. I’ve talked a little bit about our planning in a separate post here. Today’s post is essentially two-in-one, because Nicole and I have both detailed our dress-making adventures for you. The same dress can work on two very different body types–after some trials and tribulations.
