Testing the Jackie Dress

When Amy at Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop asked for volunteers to test the Jackie Dress, I jumped at the chance.  All of her patterns are so well drafted, and I own roughly ten of her other patterns, so I felt like this would be a good chance to make another sweet dress.

As with most of Amy's patterns, this one was a dream to sew.  The PDF pieces lined up easily for cutting, and her tutorial made easy work of inserting the piping, the zipper, and the lining.  The only trouble to be had with this pattern was carving out the time to sew it.

I used some Violet Craft for Michael Miller that I got at a local fabric shop, and I have to say that I am really pleased with the slight spring-like feel of this dress.  While we're keeping it in the closet for April or May, this dress could easily be layered over a plain white tee.  It also looks darlin' with her little blue cardigan!
