The Groove Dress from Madeit patterns is such a satisfying sew. Only five pattern pieces; front, back, 2 sleeves and a neckband if you do the basic version and then you just run your fabric through the serger and zimzalabim you have a great flowy dress that your girl loves!
It doesn’t hurt that the fabric is sparkly as well! Fabric is this rayon/jersey from Imagine Gnats. I’ve been using so much fabric from Imagine Gnats lately that you might think I was in affiliation with the store, but I’m not I just love her fabrics and the customer service is great!
Poor kid was freezing, it’s not easy being the kid of a sewing blogger! But she is used to it by now so we power through and photo shoots don’t take so long anymore cause she knows what to do.
This time I did the high-low version in size 6 and to make this an even faster project I did rolled hem. You might have noticed the seam down the front. I’m choosing to file it under artistic creativity and not a mistake, wink wink! I didn’t have so much left of the fabric from a previous project, which I’ll share soon. I didn’t think before I begun cutting and started with the back piece but than I didn’t have enough to place the front on the fold. First I was totally bummed but it grew on me and now I’m completely fine with it.
I have the women’s version of this pattern and I have to make one for myself soon!
And that’s a wrap folks!
