Officer Hopps is actually off duty today and is all dressed up! Last year when the pattern came out I made my Tinker Bell dress. So I thought it was about time to add another wonderful knit dress to my wardrobe. I like the simplicity of the pattern. Even though it is a knit dress, Deer and Doe has made it with a princess seam bodice to give the bodice more shape.
I’ve cut out the dress from the fabric a long time ago, about 8 months, but haven’t sewed it up until now. I don’t know why since the pattern is very quick to make. I love wearing knit dresses, but not such a fan of sewing them. I do have an overlocker which I could have sewn all my seams with, but I don’t like the results of it. I much rather prefer sewing on my machine and finishing the seams with the overlocker for a neater finish.
This time I sewed up the V-neck version of the pattern. I do think it might be too revealing, but I also think it could work without being too vulgar. Maybe the glasses tones it down a bit. I don’t usually wear my glasses, but my contacts have been bugging me lately, so I actually wore my glasses a whole 24 hours the day of the photo shoot. What do you think?
