Sewaholic's Saltspring Dress V1
Miss Crayola Creepy 4:29 PM Completed projectSaltspring dress by Sewaholic has my heart. I'm jet lagged from going to Ohio and having to stay unexpectedly overnight in Phoenix due to bad weather, but I'm still going to get started on another version of this dress when I get home because I can't get it out of my mind!
Back to the sewing, you guys, I can't say enough good things about this pattern. It's straightforward to sew (although there is a sew along going on right now if you need some extra help), super comfortable, and the longer length (View B) makes me feel so glamorous.
There seems to be some hesitation on whether this silhouette will work for some people based on their height. I was one of these people, but this pattern has converted me. I'm not the tallest or the shortest (5'5), but I think the pattern works for me!
Before starting to sew I was kind of confused on the whole blousing thing. Once I saw the pieces cut out it all made sense. The lining piece is slightly shorter than the bodice front. When the bottom pieces are lined up and sewn together the top bodice piece bubbles because it's a little longer. It's very clever because throughout the day you're not yanking at the bodice trying to get it to lay correctly.
