A Sewn Item A Week – Week 23

Week 23 – Purple Jersey Dress

Ah yes – the purple jersey dress.   The dress that sat on the dressmaking model for 2.5 weeks while my machine had to go to rehab…  But it is now.. complete.

Using some of my other patterns (like the 80s style dress in week 1) for a base, I altered little bits of the pattern to create this dress.  The sleeves are the biggest difference, sitting a little fuller than most at the top half of the sleeve, and then a double fitted part of the sleeve below the elbow.   I also added a loose bow round the top of the neck line.   That’s about all there is too it… wearable with leggings in winter, or in spring with bare legs.   This is a very comfortable, and versatile dress.
