I've been a Seamwork member for a little now but besides the Clarke top which I've done a few times now and the Moji pants I made last year, I hadn't really tried any other pattern. I've had the Bobby dress on my "to make" list since it came out in April 2019.
I was hoping this would make a really cute summer dress, however my fabric choice wasn't great for really hot weather.
This is Ponte Roma from Minerva Crafts in the "wine" colour. This is a lovely fabric to work with and although the Minerva website has this listed as a medium weight Ponte, it is a lot heavier than I expected. This will be a great fall/winter dress paired with a cute cardigan or blazer.
I love the simplicity of this dress, I like the elastic waist and it was a pretty easy make.
But I made a mistake and cut a size 16 for some reason - I'm an 18 in Seamwork patterns so this dress is a little snug.
Next time, I'll definitely make a size 18 and raise the V neck a little bit - I'm not used to wearing a deep V like this and prefer a little more coverage.
