So Faye has me on a roll. I may as well take advantage of this downtime and get some fast, easy personal sewing done. This is my fifth dress. Yeah me! I purchased this fabric from Melody a few years ago. I used a small amount when I made M6069 last year (I made it so the cowl can be worn either in the front or the back) and knew I wanted some sort of wrap dress from the rest. S2369 fit the bill especially after seeing some wonderful versions on Pattern Review. Basically, it's a pullover dress styled as a mock wrap. The front overlay curves and sits at the waist for flattery and control. It has two-piece raglan sleeves of which I cut four. I don't know about anyone else, but hemming a bias/curved sleeve in a knit is a PITA! I could use some sort of fusible stabilizer but the finish would not be a neat.
