So Ellie and Mac has done a little update on the Be Confident Dress.This is the first time I have sewn this pattern as it wasn’t in my size range before. I love when something is updated for plus sizes!
In typical EAM style, this one sewed up very quickly and looks lovely. It comes with 7 different skirt length options so you can choose your style. I made two of them to share with you. The Pink Camo print is the tunic length hi-lo top and the floral is the petite length hi-lo skirt.
Here is a side by side. The Petite dress length comes almost to my knees at the shortest point so I can wear it with or without bottoms. The bodice is nicely fitted without being too snug and the banded tank sleeves gives it a nice quick finish! Below is the side by side back view.
So in the update the size range was expanded. It is now ranged XXS to 4x. The fit has been adjusted for a better fit as well. The pattern pages are now trimless and available in A0 format. Also the instructions are in a better format keeping up with the new EAM standard.
So let’s talk amazing fabric! Both are from Sly Fox Fabrics and both are wonderful to sew with. The Camo in Blush is a lovely Spun Poly. This is the first time I have sewn with it and it sewed up like a dream. It has wonderful drape and excellent twirl qualities! Here is the link to all things camo over at Sly Fox Fabrics. I also linked to the Camo in blush just above. The floral print is Monet in Olive. The muted tone of Poly Rayon Spandex is perfect for fall and is going to look perfect under a cardigan this fall. The Monet is no longer available as I have been hoarding this one for months. Here is the link to all the the Poly Rayon Spandex at Sly Fox Fabrics. If you have been reading my blog long, you know I have used several of them.
Since this pattern is a rerelease if you already have it, you can download the update to your account. If you now see what you’ve been missing, you can purchase it here.
