Springtime Moira dress #11

Now that we are past the Spring Equinox I have been checking out my ‘Spring’ wardrobe. I want to continue with the Golden Daffodils and Spring Green theme and so hooked out the last of this Yellow Palm leaf print viscose that I bought from Rainbow Fabrics, Kilburn.

For a while I prevaricated over which style to make but finally decided on yet another ‘Moira’ dress. This style is easy to make, even with a lining, and is so very comfortable to wear. The added bonus is that it will coordinate well with my latest Sorrento jacket.

All the usual construction except that this time I added my TNT favourite short sleeve with the gathered sleeve head. The facings of the sleeve hem are supported with lightweight interfacing and after the under-stitching, were hand stitched in place to prevent them flopping down.

All seams of the dress and lining were overlocked to prevent fraying and prolong the life of the dress. The narrow hem was overlocked and then turned twice before top stitching in place.

I do love this pattern but now that I have made 11 versions, perhaps I should move on and try a different pattern. We will have to wait and see.
