Final version of the Truffle dress

28 comments

 My final version of the Truffle dress is completed and I couldn't be happier. Wait, I think I'm in love!

It's funny, originally I wasn't too excited about this pattern. That's not to say I didn't like it, I just didn't know that I was going to become obsessed with it. I want to make this dress in every color! I want one without a ruffle, one with piping along the collar, and one in a Hawaiian print. This dress is SO comfortable, fits nicely (I didn't have to make any adjustments!), and it was easy to sew up.

Luke had to run off to band practice and he only took a few pictures, so I took one of myself :)

I wasn't crazy about the waist area because there was a visible line where the prints didn't match up. I solved that by making a purple sash to tie around my waist.

I made sure to "take my time" on this dress because my Grandma said to. She did NOT like my muslin because the zipper wasn't perfect. Even though I took my time, the dress didn't take long to sew up the second time around. I may have converted to someone that is a fan of wearable muslins :)

Tomorrow I will be posting some of my favorite dresses from the Sew Colette Flickr group. Excited!

  1. It is perfect! I can't get enough of that fabric. I think you shared where it's from previously, but would you mind refreshing my memory?

    p.s. I think it's hilarious that we both pretty much wrote the exact same blog post! Right down to including our mothers/grandmothers!! Haha!

    Blog twins.

  6. I just want to kiss your cheek! This dress is so perfect on you, you're perfect in it! The fabric is all kinds of crazy, in the best way possible, and so suited to such a simple dress. Also, is that your yard? Jeally.

    1. You are so sweet, thank you!

      That's our side yard. We kind of share it with the neighbors, but they're cool, so it's not an issue. Frankie loves running in it.

  12. This looks just gorgeous on you! I was kind of hesitant to sew the Truffle because quite frankly I found it a little lackluster... you have officially changed my mind! :)
