Sew Chaotically! - Faux wrap dress in a lovely textured knit - M6884

Ruthie gave me some beautiful knit pieces for my 50th birthday.  Here's how I used them:

M6886, T shirt dress
Morris Blazer


Having a Ruthie is awesome!!!  AND...
I still had one beautiful piece that, until recently, I hadn't been brave enough to cut into.  But finally....I decided that despite some less than stellar reviews....this pattern would be perfect...

So cut into it I did!  I used the remnants for the sleeves on my Linden here:

Then, I made this:
It is a faux wrap dress criticized for:  too deep a V neck combined with too short a skirt and tie placement too close to the bust with ties that were too short.  Forewarned is forearmed!  I lengthened the skirt by a couple of inches and placed the ties at my true waist after lengthening them by a couple of inches.  (Though should I make this dress again, I may leave them off completely!)  After careful checking, I decided the neckline was okay.

Sad Mannie bootie!

Have to say, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out!!  Thanks, Ruthie!!! Not only for the beautiful fabric, but for all your love, laughs and encouragement!!!  - love, cess
