Sewn by Yoshimi, Yoshimi the Flying Squirrel

Every day this month we’ll share one of our favorite pieces of clothing, providing detail about the pattern and design so you can easily move from inspiration to sewing your own favorite new piece of clothing! Learn more about Yoshimi’s amazing dress on her blog. Yoshimi also shared some pattern details with us here:

Pattern: KWIK SEW 3489 (jersey dress)

Material: rayon jersey with polyurethane blend

Pattern Alteration Note: One simple but major dramatic alteration had been applied on the hem. The hemline, which was originally rounded, was straightened flat to achieve the more urbane look (as the print of this fabric looked quite inorganic and I thought the rounded hem wouldn’t go well with the print).

Fabric Note: I recommend very soft fabrics for better results, but I warn anybody to be sure of the size at the same time. The product could be very large even though one has read the sizing chart correctly. I guess that the combination of a soft stretchy jersey + smaller size on this pattern would give a very good result, after my experience.
