Blogtoberfest (28) - the Signature Dress sewalong

So Amanda from Ellieboo and I are embarking on another sewalong as mentioned here.

I have already chosen my fabric, which is a jersey ponte from Spotlight.


Having whined to Amanda about never getting good enough range of choice down here in Tas to find things like coordinating or match rib...I of course also managed to score the perfect matching rib :)

So now I have to decide on the pattern options.  As you can see from below, there are many many options in making this one, all included in the main pattern, which is groovy.


I have chosen as follows:

...tunic or dress [dress]

...knee length or maxi [knee length]
...optional tulle at hem [maybe...]
...hooded or not [not]
...cap sleeve, short gathered sleeve, long layered sleeves [short gathered sleeve]
...shift, elastic casing at waist, shirring (I think) [probably shirring]
...kangaroo pocket or not [unsure - might cut out in contrast rib and see if that works?]


So there are the choices; a knee length dress with gathered sleeve and possible pocket.  That and trying to save the muslin non-fitting Washi in the fabric that I now love should keep me busy!  AND I am all caught up with Blogtoberfest (so we can pretend my mini-break blip never happened!!!).

See you tomorrow :)
