The PatternReview Weekend dress

Charcoal gray knit with silver and black.

I’ve been saving this fabric, too, from the same trip as the Vogue cardiwrap I made this winter. It’s a charcoal gray knit, not too heavy, with silver and black wavy lines in it. This is my version of the Elizabeth Lee Nursing Classics #210 sheath dress. I made it in a M, but after making it, realize like almost all Elizabeth Lee patterns, I really need to make a S or XS. This is a stable knit, so I used my measurements, however, I think this is a great size for a woven fabric for me and I can go smaller in a knit by 1 or 2 sizes next time.

It’s slightly swingy on the dress form (and on me, for that matter), but it’s quite cute, knee length, 3/4 sleeves. A great city dress with a great bag, a pair of high wedge sandals and a baby in a sling.

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
