Designer Stitch Ariana Knit Dress

 I found a fabric more fitting for the Designer Stitch Ariana dress pattern.  The purple version was a double knit and it was recommended but it just was too stiff for my liking.  I found a puff print ITY knit fabric that had a little more drape and it turned out lovely!

With the print being so busy you can't see the waistband.  But the fit is much better with a B cup.

Sunday selfies are quick on the way to the car but I love them!

I had an extra minute so I asked Dear Hubby to take a few quick photos of the full length of the dress.  I give this patter an A+!  It was so comfortable.

I may eventually make another version with the skirt ruffle but I really want to make some tiered skirt dresses for our upcoming Beach trip.

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