I kind of just made a dress out of my cat's blanket.
You see, I've had this fabric for a while now and every time I'd wash and dry it Binker would curl up into the warm fleece and take a nap. I'd move on to something else. The huge swath of fabric finally needed to be used. It took up a lot of room.
Pattern: Simplicity 2054 - by Cynthia Rowley. I cut out view B with the cowl in a size 12.
Mods: lengthened the waist seam by 1", swayback by 1", took out 1.5" from the back center seam, took an additional 1.5" from the top center back to prevent gaping, scooped out the neckline significantly.
Fabric: sweatshirt fleece that I bought years ago from Denver Fabrics.
I'm happy with the dress. It's comfortable and fits pretty well. As you can see, all of my stressing about the back fitting was for naught as there is still bunching and weirdness. Next time I'll just cut it on the fold. This was a blast to sew. It was super quick and I love, love, love sewing with a twin needle. Someday I'll get a coverstitch machine, but for now it's pretty satisfying.
