Another pattern test from Rogue Pattern company. This one is a loose fitting, wide neckline raglan dress with a handkerchief hem. It is very comfortable!
I had some focusing issues…excuse the slightly blurry pictures!
I made mine with a stretch French terry fabric that has a nice drape.
I felt like I was wearing my pajamas at work.
I think if you have an actual waistline, it would also work to be belted to give it a bit more structure. I, however, do not so I will be wearing it like this. 🙂
One thing to note, is that the neckline needs to have a fabric with a good amount of stretch, so it will lay correctly. It might be best to baste it on first and then serge if it lays correctly. This is just a problem with wider necklines. Too little stretch and they get floppy…too much recovery and they stand up. I did end up lengthening my pattern piece by 2″ on the fold. I think it would have only needed an extra 1″ on the fold based on this fabrics’ stretch and recovery. I will probably take it off and do that, but haven’t quite gotten to that yet.
The pattern is being released today for $4 (regular price is $9). If you are looking for a comfy, loose fitting dress, snatch this one up. 🙂
