It was kind of scary seeing Anita in such a cool maxi dress. She suddenly looked so much older. I think she felt it too cause she turned the attitude way up. Needless to say she really loves her new dress.
What I love about this new pattern from Sofiona Designs, The Cattail Tank/Dress is that its not just a very cool maxi dress. It goes from a tank to knee length to maxi length. There are several colour blocking options and there is an option for a simple racer back or a back with angled panels. The size range is from 2 – 16, which is awesome cause I guess I can’t stick my head in the sand and pretend those teen years wont come sooner than later.
I used french terry from Stofflykke for this dress and her size is 7 with 10 length. If you are doing a maxi length be prepared for a lot of taping when assembling your pattern, haha. Other than that this is a pretty fast sew and the instructions are excellent.
Sofiona Designs also just released The Tamarack Tights and combining the two you get a great workout outfit. Anita takes her Rhythmic Gymnastics quite seriously and has practices several hours per week so that’s next on my sewing list.
Well, my printer just finished printing the Tamarack so it’s time to wrap this up and get starting on my next project.
