Drapey dress

This is the Drapey dress, pattern from Fashion with Fabric book. It is the second time I make this one.

The first version was with short sleeves. I love this dress, I wear it a lot and is the perfect choice when I travel .Very comfy. 

Both are made from ponte knit, the blue is more soft then the black one but they are both very comfy to wear. Based on the finished measurements I made the smallest size

The pockets are great! In the first version, I had the feeling that it was something wrong with the pattern pieces but I think it was me not matching all the notches correct. This time, I had no problems. Even the fold in the front went really easy . It is important to mark the fold line on the fabric and to make the notches for the center front,really easy. 

After I decided to go with this fabric , I realized that it had a horizontal stripe design so I tried to match the "stripes" as good as possible. The sides seams are ok, the front ...acceptable :). 
I am very happy with this dress and I am planning to make it as a top too. PS. This pattern has appeared also in "Love sewing "magazine and you can download the PDF free from their website ... I tried and it works if you open the links on your phone or tablet and download and from there you can transfer to a computer or printer.
