Color blocking is all the rage these days, with figure hugging silhouettes showing up everywhere. The Color Block Dress by So Sew Easy is a nod to the current trend with a bit of modesty built in. The pattern features princess seams and a knit bound neckline. This dress looks best with a bright or patterned center panel, and dark side panels to accentuate the hour glass figure. Pair it with your favorite black pumps, throw on a blazer and a statement necklace and you're ready for a night on the town.

Additional Notes

Super easy to put together - the trickiest part was pinning the princess seams at the bust, and that was fiddly rather than difficult. The muslin pattern fit me perfectly with no alterations at all, the pieces came together smoothly, and I'm absolutely planning to make more dresses based on this pattern. Good buy.
