My! Did it feel ever so good to sew again! And this simple Ottobre pattern was a quick and easy way to get my feet back into the water so to speak. Yes, it was a simple pattern, but the details of the binding and the contrast pockets make it more than just ordinary. Once again, I am reminded of why I like Ottobre designs so much!
The pattern: Ottobre 4/2013, design #13, the Princess Castle dress
The fabric: lycra jersey knit from JoAnn Fabrics
The Size: 128. The dress is a bit wide on Em; I probably could have gone down a size.
Modifications: I lengthened the dress slightly. I did want to make long sleeves since the cold weather is coming, but I did not have enough fabric. The short sleeves work better under a long sleeved cardigan anyway.
