Dashing Dress

I feel so cute and down right scholarly in this dress!

This is the new, updated Dashing Dress from Ellie and Mac.

New in the update, a circle skirt option!

I used a purple and black plaid ponte from The Fab Clique Fabric Shoppe.  I like using ponte to dress up any pattern for business.

For the collar and cuffs (not part of the base pattern) I used a scrap of black double brushed poly.  I gave it a stiffer look with some iron on interfacing.   I secured the point of the sleeve cuff with black Kam snaps.

I've been making a lot of Ellie and Mac patterns lately.  The 2XL fits me so well, I only adjust a tiny bit for height.  The overlapping pages give me confidence that I assembled them correctly and leaves me room to do that tiny height adjustment!    They're almost always having a sale.  Patterns release at a discount, on top of the sale price!  So they're usually $3.85 on the day I blog them.   On Wednesdays, the patterns rotate through being on sale for $1 (Wacky Wednesday).

Here are some of my other blog posts about Ellie and Mac Patterns.
