Muse Natalie Abstract Sweater Knit Dress

Ok, so I couldn't get into the last stash busting fabric I picked out.  Maybe it's the arrows, maybe ALL the colors.  I'm just going to put it away and maybe it will speak to me later.

So instead I have this brown, aqua, grey sweater knit fabric that was screaming to me to sew another Muse Natalie dress.  One with long sleeves and short version!

Well when the fabric screams, I must listen!

I didn't have a label on this fabric so I'm going to say it's right in there with the rest of the dresses in the $10.00 range. 

I wore this dress around the house the other day and I must say~ I LOVE IT~  I did make a mistake hemming it and the back hem is about 2" longer than the front hem........I'm not sure if I hemmed it incorrectly or since it's a sweater knit fabric that it stretches out........ anyways, I'll have to find time to re-hem it.

I must give a shout out to Debbie from  www.stitchesandseams.blogspot.com, she blogged about the Muse Natalie dress and I was so taken by the pattern that I HAD to try it.  This is one of my FAVORITE blogs.  She's a great sewer and I find her style very similar to mine.

Next on my list is going to be a button down type shirt.  I really would like a white button down.  I'm thinking a muslin or two first..........


Until next time......................
