And I'm not tired of it.In fact, I have it down to a science and can make this dress from cut out to hem in 7 hours. Yeah baby!
I think what makes this dress so fast is that it has no zipper or button placket. I trim the edges, wrap it and I'm out the door! Well, maybe not that quick :)
I mean, I've gotten this dress so down that I'm adding more detailing to it just because. Rick-rack, piping (mama loves piping), the color block on the drape of the skirt, so easy to make details.
I love adding those small touches as you all know. It just takes a day dress to an exciting dress. People have stopped me and given me so many compliments on the details.
For this last linen dress because I pipped the waistline, I decided to add some casing around the oval elastic loop. It turned out great.
I don't know if I'm going to make this dress again, but now I have to think about another wrap design that I can tweak as well as this one.
Super cute, right!!
It's so good to have a design that you are so comfortable with. One that fits so well, and one that I can make in my sleep. It feels like a success. Feels swell.

But when thinking about that great fit and making a pattern over and over, how about you, do you all have a pattern that you've taken the time to tweak and are just in love?
Have a great Friday!
