Hello, my friends! I hope you are well. Today, I want to share my latest dress I made. It’s Lacey Dress from StyleArc.
They are an Aussie-based company and I got the pattern from their website in PDF. If you prefer paper patterns, you can purchase from Amazon.
This is my first make of their pattern. I have been collecting their patterns. I don’t know why I waited this long. Lol
I am so happy that I finally started.
My eyes are drawn to the directions of stripes of this dress that I had to get it.
To be honest, this type of loose fit dress isn’t my kind of dress, but I decided to take my risk. I just LOVED this stripe-play of this dress so much!!
I am so glad I tried because I started liking this loose fit. It’s totally perfect for a hot summer! I have plenty of fabric left, so I made belt so that I have an option.
Pattern: Lacy dress from Style Arc
Pattern Description: Easy slip-on dress with an extended shoulder, square line bodice, and slightly gathered skirt.
Sizing: 4-30 (I cut size 8)
Does it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, I like how they color which seams to sew together, but letters are small for me
Did I make in alterations? Shorten 1” from the front, back, sleeves and 3 1/4” from the skirt
Made pockets deeper, but they are still small for my hands.
instead of two-row of basting stitch and gathering methods on instructions, I used an elastic method that I learned with making my Moneta dress.
Sew Abigail has a great tutorial for it.
Would I sew it again? If I find the perfect fabric for this pattern, yes! Probably with woven next time
Would I recommend it to others? Yes!
