The Isla is a wrap dress with no peek-a-boo bra issues because it crosses over in the back. I love it! The pattern is so simple to put together; there aren’t any really tricky bits. If you can sew a dart, you can make this dress.
I made this version of the Lyra Dress from the Tilly and the Buttons as a muslin. It originally had long sleeves, but after I chopped them off, I loved it enough to add it to my wardrobe. It just so happens to match my new boots, so I had a photo shoot today.
The Ultimate Shift Dress is simple and easy to sew. My fabric choice seemingly featured at least one private body part, but I’m not complaining about it. I think it comes close to reaching my goal of finding the perfect pattern to create a vintage style-shift wardrobe.
I thought shift dresses weren’t for me, but I’ve learned differently and want to make myself a million of them!
This post is an introduction of sorts. It’s a little info on my background, why I started Big Fat Fashion, and my goals for it.
