I just can’t help myself!

2011 May 4

After my stumble with KS3408, I am making another M6069.  I just can’t help myself.  I love the pattern and I love the knits I bought from Fabric Mart, Elliott Berman, and Mood.

This will be my third dress made from this pattern so I am definitely calling it a TNT folks.  I love it.  It’s so comfortable to wear.  The drape neck is perfect.  The drafting is perfect.  What can I say?  I feel beautiful in this dress.

I am making this third version with Mother’s day in mind.  So with that thought, I had to choose my knit print carefully.  It needed to show off the lines of the dress and be festive at the same time.  Also, it had to look Spring-y.  It came down to these three choices.




Which one do you think I picked?


On a different topic…  Thank you so much for the thoughtful comments regarding my farewell post.  I don’t mean to be a constant pity fest here, but these thoughts have been prevalent in my mind for a while and they needed to get out.  It’s hell getting old, ain’t it?

    I think you picked the middle one. The top one isn’t ‘springy’, and the bottom one is too similar to the one you just made (though it’s my favourite). Am I right?

    I like the third one for Mother’s Day. Actually would be great for Easter too (although that just passed). I really love the middle print though. The top one will look great for the dress pattern, but doesn’t say Mother’s Day to me.

    It’s going to be hard to bet the second one you made, but I like #1.

    I’d vote for number one or number three. I think the zig-zaggyness of number two could become a bit overwhelming with the cowl neck. After further consideration, I think number three looks more “springy”. Happy Mother’s Day!
