Update - Michelle Dress Pattern

I mentioned last fall that I was working on a dress pattern, next to be published.  Where did the time go?

I got stumped for quite a while on how to illustrate and explain the complicated draping and pleating on the front.

So this week I dived in once again, thinking there has to be a way.  Eureka!  While watching vintage Sci Fi movies I found a new method. 

Here are some snaps of the first prototype. 

It is very similar to the original design, but easier to drape and to explain.  I'm outlining the pattern detail today and will keep going till it is finished, I promise!

The pockets are deep and great for carting things around while crafting and sewing, they really are the "feature".

 Women LOVE this pattern.  I get stopped constantly when I wear my earlier versions.  It doesn't exactly skim the figure but it is comfortable, playful, a bit romantic, eye catching, sweet and just plain fun. 

P.S. Buy currently released patterns here

  2. I'm really looking forward to this the sleevy pockets! I'm thinking mid thigh tunic length to wear with leggings.
