Ultimate Shift Dress

I’m super excited to show you my latest make – The Ultimate Shift Dress by Sew Over It! This one has been on my ‘to sew’ list for a while and now that it’s warmer (sort of?), I really want to bring dresses back into my life. IMG_5503.jpg

In the true spirit of spring, it started to rain when we were taking pictures. No worries though! Umbrellas make great props. 😉

This was a seriously easy project and very beginner-friendly. No buttons, no zippers, just good times! If you’re new to sewing clothing but want to make something versatile, comfy, and pretty darn adorable, this is your dress!

For me it came together in a matter of days, and there were no major issues. I did make a mock-up before I cut into my good fabric (which I highly recommend!), but the only adjustment I needed was to shift up the bust dart a few inches.

I also love love love this fabric. I bought it at our lovely neighbourhood Fiberlilly, and it was a real find. It’s like a magical mix of a knit and a cotton. Very easy to work with, but enough stretch to give it extra ease. Plus, the print is awesomely awesome.

More makes are coming your way very soon!
