Flounce Dress featuring Simply By Ti Fabrics

As my little guy is getting older, I’m getting back to a place where I can easily wear dresses again. I find that when it comes to dresses, I’m drawn to the short sleeve and sleeveless looks, leaving a gap in my wardrobe for the fall and winter.

I have a couple long sleeve dresses now for everyday wear, but I’ve been wanting something a little less casual.  I really liked the nice front and back v-neck and fitted bodice of the Flounce Dress from DG Patterns.

For my Simply By Ti Ambassador** project, I chose the black and white ponte from Simply by Ti. It shouldn’t be any surprise that I was drawn to the graphic print. I like working with ponte for its stability and ponte being a little heavier weight works really well for cold weather garments.

The Pattern:  Flounce Dress and Top from DG Patterns*. The pattern comes loaded with options; including a top or dress version, several necklines, sleeve lengths, gathered or pleated skirt, and of course the flounce detail. I chose to make the long sleeve dress with moderate v-neck, pleated skirt and no flounce.

I made a size 10 per my measurements and the fit is wonderful. I did make two modifications for fit that are pretty normal for me. I shorten the skirt by about 5in for it to hit where I like and slimmed down the sleeves for my skinny arms.

I’ll remind you to always read the instructions first. I was moving along though the pattern and had almost made myself the sleeveless version. (The sleeve construction is included with the instructions for the top version)

The Fabric:  Black and White ponte from Simply by Ti. The weight of the ponte will give me just enough warmth for my cold weather dress, but most of all I just love this print.
