Sundressing 2017 – Magnolia Dress

One of my favourite projects last year was creating the Carkeek dress for the 30 Days of Sundresses with Melissa of Melly Sews.

 

Well I am back again for this years Sundressing 2017 with my newest FREE pattern, Magnolia!

Magnolia is a knit swing dress with a hi-low hem that is the perfect dress for those warm summer days.  The back features a racerback with gathered yoke.

With the added fabric from the gathered back detail you get so much swing in the dress, that paired with a more fitted front bust gives you a great silhouette without being too tight.

Bryant Dress Remix

Believe it or not the cuffed sleeves was a last minute addition to the Bryant pattern right before testing started.  So what was just a quick addition turned into one of my favourite elements of the pattern.

Right after I decided to add the cuffs I realized that lengthened slightly this pattern would be perfect as a dress.  Not to toot my own horn, but I was totally right about the dress.

My husband pointed out when I put this on today that I have been on a grey kick lately.  Maybe it’s the never ending rain here that is getting to me.
