We can't have too many 'everyday' clothes, right? In that vein, I used the Metropolitan Good Times Dress
from Hot Patterns, some drapy rayon knit, and a few hours to make this. Easy and comfortable to wear.
The belt at the waistline is an 'in and out' style. At front and back are two holes, each about 5 inches in from the side seam. To wear the dress, you thread the belt outside at center back, in the two holes in the back, then out the front at the holes and tie at front.
Doesn't the yoke look a bit like a church choir robe? It's saved from that effect overall, though, I think because the armholes are cut high and close to the body. Still very comfortable, and not, in my opinion, frumpy, which it very well could have been had the armholes been lower.
The highlight of this project was that I got to use my new blind hemmer! Wowza, does this baby make short work of invisible hems. I should have bought this sooner. In honor of my grandmother Eleanor, I used some of the money she left me to buy this machine and a gravity feed iron. I think she would have been happy with these purchases!
