I've made a ton of Marianne Dresses, but this one gets the most wear hands down. I blame the fabric, as it's super cozy and impossible to resist.
For this version, I used the front and back from View A, with the elbow sleeves of View B, leaving off the yoke, collar, and cuff. I love this combo because it's just simple and versatile. The fabric was picked up months ago at Mood in Los Angeles. I spotted it and didn't know what I wanted to do with it at the time, but I knew I had to have it. It's like the greatest sweatshirt dress.
I sewed this up straight per the original instructions. The only changes I made is to slightly lengthen the neck binding as it's not as stretchy as thinner knits, and I blended from my usual size 10 to a 14 in the hips to make it a little wider to accommodate for the thickness of the fabric. The dress is not as drapey because of the thickness, which gives it a more a-line shape through the dress.
And how are you all doing so far? Have you gathered your supplies? Monday I'll have another finished make for you, then Tuesday we'll get back to the sew-along and talk about choosing the correct size.
