Summer Whimsy!

Summer is a season to have fun with fashion!  Dorcas, Brand Ambassador for Sew Much Fabric, is doing just that with a little bit of whimsy!  Thanks, Dorcas!! 

If you’re in Texas, you’re probably sizzling in this heat wave, too, so what better way to stay cool than sewing another Sizzler Sundress from Naughty Bobbins?  This time I’ve used a Whimsical Floral Digital Print Rayon Jersey Knit from Roz at Sew Much Fabric. As Brand Ambassador I have the privilege of choosing the fabric with which I want to sew. Last week I visited Roz in person with another knit in mind for this project, but once I spied this happy floral it stole my heart!

And now for a miracle find I’m just learning out about! The front of this dress has a gathered panel so it is not lined:

However, the bodice and back of the dress are lined. Roz introduced me to Tricot for lining. What planet have I been living on that I’m just discovering this wonder fabric?? It is simply divine:

The Sizzler may be my all time favorite dress. The finishing techniques are so professional and you end up with such a neat, beautifully made garment.

In addition to the crossed front V, I love the deep V in the back. But it’s a perfect V- no bra peeking!

Perfect pattern, perfect fabric, perfect lining. If you have to brave the heat, you may as well do it in perfection!
