A Beautiful Day To Wear a Dress!

IMG_1215

This is a Cecelia Dress from The Magic Pattern Book by Amy Barickman. I love this dress and this is the third one I have made. You can wear it with a belt, that is in the pattern, or without a belt at all. Then it looks like a shift dress. I am currently on the lookout for a thin yellow or navy leather store bought belt to wear along with it. This fabric is Arizona by April Rhodes from Art Gallery Fabrics. I like all of the prints in this collection but this one looked like it would make an amazing dress.

This is a wonderful go to pattern because you can make it from any 2+ yards of fabric, as long as the print is non directional. The sleeves have a pretty tulip shape and I like that it has a big pocket. It is wonderful to have a pocket! There is not a zipper or buttons to worry about sewing, only elastic at the neck line. What a gorgeous day!
