Pati Palmer helped me select this great animal print for my Style Arc Slip on Suziewrap dress. I love the fabric! I have never made anything in an animal print before, but this is subtle and it has great colors for me. Because I don’t usually need to do a full-bust adjustment on Style Arc patterns, I just cut the fabric and sewed it up (with some fit-as-you-sew going on in the mirror). I love the dress, but I think I will figure out how to do a full-bust adjustment before I make it again. As you can see, there is some pulling on the sides because the wrap part has to go a little to far to make it all the way.
I also made the Style Arc
. I made it out of stretch linen, which I did not know existed until Pati Palmer wore a cardigan made out of it to our class one day. It’s gorgeous and flow-y. According to the Style Arc website, the cardigan has a slimming silhouette and a cascading front. I must agree. The cardigan turned out just like the picture. I made no changes.
