When I looked in the closet of our youngest I saw that she has only a few short sleeved dresses. Of course she has many dresses in her closet but mostly sleeveless or long sleeved dresses. So a perfect reason to sew another dress for her. I picked out the Wylde top and dress from Stitch upon a time*. Every time I see someone sewing up the dress I like it.
And of course a perfect reason to do a rolled hem on all seams. I think the rolled hem fits perfectly with this dress. It is a quick sew and has many different options (it has seven (!) different sleeve options). I chose a flutter sleeve and the knee length skirt and was done very quickly. The only think I changed was the neckband. I didn’t want to line the body so instead I measured the neckline and took 85% and cut a neckband.
I think it a great pattern for a quick project especially if you looking for a different type of sleeve. Of course it also works great if you are looking for a crop top. I love the look of the feminine bodice and neckline and the skirt that doesn’t take up too much fabric.
