Out and About Dress by Sew Caroline

Oh, lookie lookie...a blog post. And yes this dress is exactly as stylish yet comfortable as it looks. Love at first sight for me.

It is the Out and About Dress from Sew Caroline.

I absolutely love this style of dress with a fitted bodice and a skirt with some width in. It fits my pear shape perfectly.

This is a size M with no alterations....except adding a bit more length to the knee length option.....which is absolutely expected when you are 5"10 like I am.

I might also move the waist a tiny bit (up or down...not sure yet) but again that is just me who has a very long upper body....perfectly the times I have been pregnant not so perfect when you are sewing standard size patterns, ha. And moving the waist would really just be nit picking for the absolute perfect already works as it is.

Because the pattern is so simple it really is a great base for tons of variations. I am dreaming of making a high-low version and now that I have seen Alexia's (Lexi Made) non-gathered skirt (slash and spread) I totally want to do that too. And maybe I one day will get the courage to make the maxi skirt version....Am I the only one who has nightmares about falling in a maxi skirt? Yikes. But my legs could really use some covering up most days if you know what I mean, ahhhh.

The fabric is this super soft and pretty light/medium weight heather grey/hunter green striped cotton jersey from Girl Charlee. Seriously perfect for this dress.

Thank you SO much for inviting me Caroline. That made my day!
