A good Sunday morning to you! It's raining. Yippee! Normally you would not hear us say that here in Vancouver but it's been so dry in our province and there have been so many fires, so some rain is most welcome. It also means the temperatures have cooled down a bit and we can sleep better! Maybe that will help my brain to sew better too!
I have been sewing sundresses for the hot weather. The first is a wearable muslin of the Cali Faye Collection's Basics Dress. The fabric is a Kaufman chambray.
I am very surprised by the length of the dress. I am tall (5'11") and usually dress lengths end above the knee for me. This one skimmed the bottom of my knees. My next one, I might shorten it for the summer. I added the patch pockets. I could've added in seam but I seem to be on a patch pocket kick at the moment!
Overall, I am pleased with the fit of the dress and I can see why it's called a Basics dress as you can change it up depending on the fabric you use. I can see this as a nice layering piece.
The forecast is for rain for another day or so then back to the sun and heat. More sundresses on the way too!
How's your summer going so far?
