DIY Dress + Michael Kors OOP Pattern Review

Hi Darlings!!

I am SO EXCITED that it is almost time to head to NY! it’s one of my favorite cities and I always feel at home there. Adrienne and I are trying to squeeze as much as possible into our time there, lol! I am also excited because I get to finish editing the “Off The Shoulder Maxi” Tutorial tonight, I know you guys have been waiting patiently so I thank you! It will be available here on tomorrow.

Today’s pattern review is for old out of print Michael Kors pattern which I have had in my pattern files since it came out YEARS ago. What is funny is that I always buy designer patterns even if I don’t like them, I just have an obsession with them and so I just put them aside if I am not excited about them right then. When I came across it again the other day I figured I would make it since looking at it again I really liked it.

I will say that I plan to make it again in a thin jersey in black or navy because although I really like it I used whatever fabric I didn’t already have a plan for and it is a little to heavy for this. I do love it and so did the hubby so I guess it came out ok, LOL

Pattern: V1029 OOP

Fabric: Lightweight Ponte (HERE)

Notes: I love the dress and feel like it would be really nice in a thinner fabric verses a Ponte but it did come out well and I plan to make it again with a few modifications. There is a lot of gathering but other then that this is really easy to put together. The next time I make it I am going to make some finishing changes, this one was surprisingly generic in the construction.
