StyleArc Autumn Dress


I was drawn to the StyleArc Autumn Dress pattern as soon as I saw it and grabbed it in a recent Etsy sale. I love the deep overlap at the neckline that extends into a front pleat, the loose fit and the curved hem. The back pleat is also an interesting feature - more on that later. 


Since we are now in the season of autumn, I chose a lightweight corduroy for this dress. The fabric came from Remida as an unwanted factory offcut so I'm doing my bit for sustainability! I wasn't sure about the colour at first, but it's grown on me and now I rather love it.


This dress is not difficult to sew and the front came together quickly. That neckline and collar are so lovely.


The back, however, caused me a few problems. Despite following the diagram in the instructions, I just could not get it folded correctly. I tried to match the folded back with the width of the yoke, but still could not work it out. I tried for over an hour, studying the website photo and drawing diagrams, before giving up and going to bed. I pondered it overnight and went straight to it again in the morning. After almost another hour, I finally got it. I can't remember the last time I got so confused over a simple bit of folding!


I drew a diagram each time I thought I'd got it right. The one at the top is the correct one. It's a bit messy but may help someone. It's also quite different from the diagram in the instructions, which is more like my discarded diagrams.


From then on, it was smooth sailing again and I'm so happy with the way the dress turned out. As always, StyleArc's drafting and fit is spot on and this is a gorgeous pattern.

  2. I've been considering this pattern, and I appreciate your diagram for how to assemble the back! If I get the pattern, now I know how to be successful with the pleat. :)

  4. Love it on you. I would love to make it but think it would overwhelm me as did the named helmi dress. I think the colour is gorgeous.

  7. This is really lovely Megan. Such a pretty colour and I think it would work well with tights and a long sleeved tee underneath for the cooler weather. Glad I'm not the only one who struggles with Stylarc instructions.

  14. The latest in 3D การพนันออนไลน์, Inter casino, has announced the arrival of new versions of its "คาสิโนสด software", despite its constant 3D visuals. Play Since then, casinos are quite numerous and some poker rooms have produced so-called 3D software; there are still static images, pre-rendered images of people and tables, which are involved with "real 3D" but a little tridimensionality in general. In the casino is not very interesting - 3D tables or even dealers will not revolutionize, although the 3D effect of poker has become quite revolutionary?
