It feels like I’m the last sewing blogger to attempt this DKNY dress pattern that came out last spring, but I kept my eye on it until I found the right fabric. It’s not often that I find a sewing pattern that a) looks good on all body types, b) is super easy to make, and c) is a designer sewing pattern.
I took the pattern out of the envelope this afternoon and marveled at the construction of this dress: it’s essentially only two pieces (minus the neck facing)! The whole front and lower back skirt are one piece that join in a seam in the back, and the upper back piece is then connected to the shoulders, lower skirt, and sides. It’s a brilliantly constructed pattern and I can’t wait to cut this one out – looks like it’ll be a quick enough sew for me to wear to work this week with a blazer.
Also – I must be on a black and white kick. The last dress I made was b&w, I just finished my Simplicity 2369, a black and white top with black pants (pics to come), and now this dress. Plus, I bought fabric for two button-up tops that are black and white floral prints! Now I know I need to inject some color into my sewing!
