And here is the top version of the Pattern Emporium Field of Dreams Strappy Tiered Dress and Top that I shared yesterday! I’ve already mentioned that the pattern has a ton of different styles so now you get to see another one. I love how cute and summery it is, styled here with my homemade Ginger Jeans . . . that I have yet to post. I’ll get to that eventually, but you get a sneak peak now.
This one is a size 8 which is what I measure and you can see that it looks fine though definitely a little roomier. Though now you can see the difference in the sizes by comparing to my other one. But given the fabric is stiffer — this is some random cotton poly I had in my stash from my mom— I don’t mine the extra space. Unfortunately I can’t wear my normal bras with the thin straps, but I do have some that would work though here I’m wearing a strapless. Since it’s fully lined, I could probably even go braless if I felt like it.
Giving you all the back view because I like to show all sides. There’s a little wrinkling on the back but that’s mostly due to the fabric, not the fit or maybe because I need to iron it after trying it on and off so much. It just pulls on over my head but that can lead to some squishing of the fabric as I do so.
I was actually able to squeeze this out of less than a yard of the fashion fabric and just used some plain white muslin for the lining, so this is one of my new favorite stash buster patterns for when I’ve got just a little bit of a fabric I like left. And if you do the button front like on my dress you can squeeze it out of even weirder remnants since then the front is in 2 pieces!
So there are 2 versions of this dress. If you check out the pattern page you can see many more variations. I saw so many that I want, so I’m sure I’ll be making more down the line!
very flattering ensemble
Why thank you! 😀
