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.
My expectations and reality did not align on this project. I was hoping to make a work-appropriate sweater, but instead ended up with a fancy sweatshirt.
Here’s the first item from my fall “collection.” This is the Terry Tie Cardi from Style Arc, and I love it.
When I started my first job, I bought two knit wrap dresses from Banana Republic that became staples in my work wardrobe. They’ve worn out in the 7 years since. I recently started working full-time again, and I wanted to find a nice knit wrap dress pattern to make a new arsenal.
This dress checks so many boxes: Easy to make? Check! Flattering? Check! Comfortable? Check! Versatile? Check! This is the Davie Dress by Sewaholic.
