Dashing Dress

I sewed this up a few months ago, then took a brief hiatus from blogville. I am back and feeling rejuvenated! This is the Dashing Dress from Ellie and Mac and it updated when I was taking pics! It has now expanded into the 5x size range which is wonderful! I sewed the 4x bust graded to a 5x waist. I did a full bicep adjustment as well. You can view my recent blog post at Ellie and Mac blog to see a Step by Step tutorial of how to do this or watch my video here.


EAM Dashing Dress 2

I am wearing the square collar, knee length dress with long sleeves. This is the circle skirt option, not the gathered option. The next time I make this dress, I will raise my waistline up a bit so that it hits at a more flattering spot. I am only 5’1 so this would be a typical height adjustment to make. Ellie and Mac drafts for 5’5′, I believe. This dress has a major twirl factor if you are a twirling kind of gal!

I picked this print up at Sly Fox Fabrics and I love the wild funky color and print combo. This print is called Charisma and it is Rayon Spandex. This print is no longer listed, but they have a ton of other amazing prints! I love that they ship within 24 hours! Not too many companies have that short of a turn around time. Also flat rate shipping!!! $6.99 for any order in the US!!
