Hello friends, It’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. Normally, you can find me on Instagram but today I am jumping back on here to share my latest. I’m SUPER excited to be collaborating with Measure Fabric on this post. I’ve been a huge admirer of the fabric shop for quite some time.
When it came time to decide on which fabric to choose, it took me forever because I loved so many print in the shop. I decided to start with the pattern and then choose the fabric. The fabric I decided on was The Rebecca Taylor – Italian Rayon Navy & White Tartan Plaid Twill . I love the simplicity of the print, drape and the weight of the fabric. For the pattern, I had been wanting to remake Atlas Dress by Masin since I made it the first time last year. They pair so well together! Together they give a casual vibe, an everyday kinda dress vibe and I for one can’t wait to wear it a lot!!

As I said before, I first made The Atlas Dress late last year and loved the fit and style. When I finished, I immediately knew I wanted to make another as soon as the weather started to warm up this year. Well, had the weather warmed up? Not really, we have been unseasonably cool here in the west coast. But, I am going to will it that way with a sleeveless dress. That usually works, right? HA!
Ok, here are some detail about the Atlas dress: Comes in sizes A-J, bust width 35″-54″ and waist 25″-46″. This pattern would be great for a confident beginner and up. It’s an easy to fit dress, as with this style of dress. There is also plenty of ease built into the garment. The dress comes with sleeves however, I choose to leave them off and use bias tape around the armhole. It’s a very simple hack using 1/2″ double bias tape. I hope you get the chance to make the Atlas Dress pattern!
