Sew Caroline's Out and About Dress made by resliced by Jordan
This is actually the first dress I ever made! I fell IN LOVE with Sew Caroline's long black version and knew I HAD to go for it. I used a cotton jersey fabric from Girl Charlee that was a nice choice for a beginner (not too stretchy). I used a dress I had in my closet whose fit I liked to approximate where I wanted the waist to fall (I am petite so I knew it would need to be lifted). I ended up shortening the bodice a few inches which worked perfect. I added the pockets which I love and highly recommend. I can't believe I haven't made more versions of this dress because it's one of my favorite patterns yet! The fit is great.
