Hey guys! Man on man. I have so many things to update you guys on but first we will start with this Handkerchief Dress.
As usual fabric is ALWAYS my first inspiration, unless it’s not – then it’s SHOES lol, but you all know this by now.
I have had this fabric for a while now. I think I picked it up while I was in Atlanta a year or so ago. Most of you also know that I hardly EVER cut fabric as soon as I purchase it. If I do it’s something super special. Most of my fabric has a 2 year shelf life lol.
One thing I absolutely LOVE about this dress is that you can wear it with or without a belt. I could have easily put on some flats with this dress and ran errands across town. I call that a multi-function dress lol. I may pull this one out this week and wear it with a denim jacket and some cute flats. Yep. I think I’ll do just that.
Oh and in case you didn’t notice, this dress is totally twirl worthy. I don’t care how old I am I will NEVER be too old to twirl!

For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Dress with attached slip is fitted and flared, has shoulder straps, French darts and narrow hem. A, B: Handkerchief hem. A: Belt. B: Contrast lower sections and hem band on slip.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I purposely followed these instructions to the “T”. They are perfect. I didn’t have any problems.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I just love this style dress. So cute, flirty and just easy to wear.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I doubt if I will make this one again but it’s a great one to have for sure.
Conclusion: Great dress and a great pattern to work with.
