I just can't get enough of this Mesa Dress pattern! It's so simple to sew and cozy to wear. Immediately after finishing my first Mesa, I was itching to make another one. I found this slightly-sporty lightweight sweater-knit at Joannes on sale, and it was ON! I decided to use some leftover black textured fabric for my sleeves. It's the same fabric I used on my first Mesa and on my Midnight Myrtle.
After already putting the pattern together once, I sewed this up really quick. It still took me a few days - I like to work on projects for a little, then put them aside, and then work on them again. My proudest moment for this project, was getting my stripes to line up! I didn't even try it on purpose (because I was lazy & didn't think I had enough fabric). Somehow when I was pinning - I noticed that I could match them up if I just stretched the fabric a little - et voila! Lovely stripe matching :)
|Matching side seams!!! Yay!|
I've already started cutting fabric for a swimsuit - hopefully I'll have it done for Labor Day weekend!
