So Sew Easy’s Color Block Dress: The Blog Tour

Today I get to show off an amazing dress that Deby from So Sew Easy! She just released her new Color Block Dress! *I was given the pattern for free in return for my post and review. I would have happily paid for this dress because it is that awesome!* This pattern requires stretchy knit fabrics, so the combination of the color blocking is endless. I at first wanted to find a fun pattern with lots of purples throughout because that is my go to, but then one night at work while enjoying a wonderful Dove chocolate it came to me…

As I finished that chocolate and read these wonderful words of wisdom I thought to myself, “you know what? You DO look good in red!! That color block dress will look pretty darn snazzy in red!” So off to the fabric store I went, and this time I drug my poor hubby along with me! He spotted this wonderful light weight black and white polka-dot knit and I knew that would work well with the darker red I had picked out! I think it looks super cute and I can’t wait to wear it to work!

Not only was this one of the easiest dresses to put together, it also looks really sharp! I was a little afraid of wearing it at first – I have always had hips. But because of the stretch in my knits (and clever posing) it ended up really well!

I love patterns that are written well, and are not to complicated with tons of pieces. Deby did a great job simplifying this pattern but leaving the options open to so many ways to put this together!

You will be seeing me make more of these soon! I love that they can be made dressy or more simple, it all depends on your choice of fabric!

    Wow, you look amazing! It really suits you. Now I’e seen your red version its given me an idea for my next one. I have a lovely bright red I’ve been dying to use but thought it too overpowering to wear all over. But I could certainly use it as my featured panel like you have. Thanks for trying out the pattern.
