Finally, I sewed myself a little spring number! This dress was 100% brought on by the need to sew for Spring! The current stocking at Amelia Lane Designs is Springy prints and all Double Brushed Poly. DBP fabric is a drapey knit that comes in a huge range of colors and prints. The first one I am sharing has beautiful flowers on a lovely plum background. It is called Bristol. The design and colors are perfect for warmer weather. When my package arrived, it included a note stating that this fabric was the softest brushed poly ever and after working with it, I actually have to agree. It is amazingly soft. I knew I wanted a pretty dress for spring, but also knew I only had 2 yards to work with. Let Fabric Jenga Happen!!
I perused my pattern collection looking for something new and fun. I wanted to sew up something I hadn’t made yet, so I turned to some Ellie and Mac patterns that I missed during my testing break. I choose to make the To The Point. This pattern comes in 3 length options. Here I am wearing the long tunic length. This is the middle length of the options included in the pattern. I also am wearing a mid length sleeve.
Like most Ellie and Mac patterns this one comes in sizes up to 5x. You can choose a slim fit or a loose one. I am honestly not sure how I missed that when I printed the pattern, but I made the slim option. I am not a slim fit kinda gal so I wish I would have realized this before making it.
A few other things to note
Three sleeve options
Two neckline options
Tunic, long tunic or dress length options
Fitted or relaxed version options
The pattern also included directions for color blocking.
This pattern came together very quickly. For some reason, I always feel like garments finish much faster when I do the hemming first. Since this pattern has the point for the hem, I did it first. I also hemmed the sleeves while they were still flat. Super speedy!
I paired my To The Point Slim fitting top with a pair of random pink pants I dyed like 2 years ago and haven’t moved from my closet since. I think they look great with my top and so springy.
