I had no idea I was choosing a fabric that so perfectly matches my hair. I am fairly certain that isn't what most fashion editors would suggest. However, it is very pretty and very, very soft and cozy. This is the Cinema Dress by Liesl and Co. I am pretty sure I bought the pattern the day it came out. I had just finished the girl's version for Anjali. I've yet to get a good picture of her in it as she is always so busy.
The fitting on the bodice of this dress is perfect me. The side view is a little wider than I would go for off the rack but I think the front and back views make up for it. The only thing I changed was sizing down two whole sizes. I don't need 4 inches of ease in the bust for a dress with princess seams. Oh, and I omitted the notch at the neckline in this version. Just because Anjali is very grabby and I don't want to make it any easier for her to get her hand in my shirt.... :)
I also bought a red corduroy to make it with. We'll see if that happens. I have spring sewing on the mind. A couple Hemock tees are up next.
