sewing project #9: COS inspired dress

Self sewn dress, Call It Spring heels

And here we have the COS inspired dress. I'm pretty excited about it! I wasn't really expecting to find felted wool at my fabric store but they had this red color. I originally planned to do something a little bit more muted but I wanted to try making it in the same fabric of the COS dress. I didn't look very hard for a pattern, and I was eager to get started. Instead of hunting for the right pattern I found this Burdastyle Basic Bodice pattern and cropped it a bit. The skirt was pretty easy, just an a-line skirt. An easy google search taught me how to make those. Since the skirt on the dress starts pretty high up I figured I didn't need darts. Turned out pretty well!! I have another fabric that isn't as stiff as this one that I'm super excited to try. Such a rad feeling of being able to look at something and make it.
