Pattern: McCall's 5042 (view A)
Size: size 8
Fabric: Brown with lime and white floral print stretch cotton from Fabricland (Canadian chain fabric store).
Comments: As a comment to my last sewing post, lsaspacey said..."You should definitely try the V-neck now!" Well, don't ever say I'm not responsive to my readers - you ask and I deliver.
I am not normally a fan of the V-neck. My smaller than average chest is typically not flattered by showing an expanse of sternum, so I tend to stick to crew necks, boat necks and the like. However, this V-neck is high enough that it is still flattering.
As with the other two dresses (here and here) made using this patterns, this new dress also sports a lined bodice and an unlined skirt.
Conclusion: Due to the dark brown background of the fabric, this dress should do an excellent job of transitioning me into fall. On warmer days, it can go solo. On cooler days, I can toss on a cardigan and perhaps a belt. So versatile.
On a non-sewing note, today is my first official day back to work - with classes and students and all the chaos that goes along with it. Wish me luck - I'm sure I'll need it!
