Since our girls mostly wear dresses and I love to sew dresses I am always on the lookout for different types of dresses with something unique. When I saw the Autumn Curry dress from A.J.s Inspired I loved the illusion of wearing a short vest on top of a dress.
Like most patterns that I buy this pattern also has a lot of option. I love to browse through all the pictures from others to decide which options I like most in combination with uni and prints fabric. I decided for the short vest (bolero) option with the long a-line skirt.
The options included in the pattern are:
* hood or zippered hood
* 4 different sleeve options (long, 3/4, short
* bolero or jacket length (you can of course also make a bolero or jacket with this pattern)
* a-line (short or long), balloon or circle skirt (short or long)
When I was shopping at Nooteboom Textiles they had a sample sweater with this teddy on the inside. I loved the look and thus bought a bolt of this teddy fabric. So far I didn’t get to using it. I though it would be perfect for this winter dress. I fully lined the bolero of this dress as I used jersey for the top. At the hem of the sleeves and the hood I just cut the teddy a bit longer and folded it around the edge and stitched it. I used kamsnaps as a closure for this dress.
Fabric: the jersey with the trees comes from Evim Textiel. The brushed Terry in blue and purple comes from Nooteboom Textiles.
