Still in Love with Style Arc

Still not tired of sewing with Style Arc patterns from Australia -- but really, what's not to like?

Description from the website:

SLIP-ON SUZIE: This is a fantastic fake wrap dress, it is easy to make and wear, just slip it on. You have the choice of a cap sleeve or a long sleeve so it’s suitable for all seasons and occasions Approx back length 106cm or 42”.


My only needed adjustment with this one was to raise the neckline, and frankly, it could go a little higher. Next one we'll give that a try.

I know I go on about this pattern line, but I love the ready-to-wear fit/sizing, the current looks, and the well-drafted patterns that fit together so nicely. I have plenty of cheaper patterns in my stash, but when you find styles that you can make again and again, well, it takes the sting out of the purchase price for sure.

Oh I love this! I've been eyeing this pattern so it's great to see it made up. Another pattern to add to my list. Got to love Style Arc! :)

I know -- can't believe how much fun it's been to sew things that fit and look good. Now, what's next? :-)

This looks fabulous on you, Karen!

That dress is fab! Just wish I had a machine that could sew knits after seeing this. My very old Singer goes forward, backward, and zigzags, that's it.

Karen said...

Margaret -- Now, don't be so quick to dismiss the abilities of a vintage Singer! Have you given it a test run with a narrow zigzag on a nice knit?

Sophia -- You are too kind!
