When I want to sew or knit something that I will wear, I try to be very conscious of how it will “get along” with the other pieces I have in my wardrobe which is why I tend to make neutral-based, non-trendy items.
A couple of months ago, I was in the mood to make a flowy dress that wasn’t too casual yet wasn’t too dressy either. This McCall’s pattern fit what I was looking for perfectly. I find that it is a nice blend of both, especially if you choose your fabric wisely. Because I chose this fun floral print, it’s more on the dressier side.
The fabric is Fiesta Shadowed Blooms and it is a woven synthetic. It was extremely easy to work with and I was able to snag 2 yards of it from Craftsy for a total of $11.50!
