Style Arc Tammy Dress

In Summer while looking at the great  range  at Style Arc for a dress that was easy cool and comfortable,I found and ordered this pattern:Style Arc dress patternI wanted to  make myself some easy wear knit dresses and tops for summer. I love the style with the little over top.

I also ordered this fabric with it.I love the color and print.

I decided after I had cut out the dresses that I wanted to have the over top as a separate piece. I didn’t want to just have it to wear with the dresses. I like little jackets so I felt I would get more wear out of the garments if I did this so I changed the pattern a little. Here are the two over top fabrics I used for the paisley dress.

The two tops made were slightly differently.  For the vinyl one I followed the pattern fairly well , but for the ribbon sheer fabric I lengthened the sleeves and added a button at the neck opening and a frill down one side of the opening .

I as yet haven’t finished a top for the floral dress its on the pile to be made. This dress is my go to knit pattern now, the fit is terrific, very easy to make and wear. Love and recommend it, these dresses are a great addition to the wardrobe. Great for warm weather.

Happy sewing ,

Sue 🙂
