I can’t believe it has taken me this long to make a Drama Dress! It’s been on my list for so long.
There’s a reason why this dress is one of the most popular GG patterns. It’s such a chameleon dress. The different options allow you to get so many looks from one pattern.
I had trouble figuring out what option skirt to use, Full or Slim. At the end I decided to go for the full skirt, I can always trim it down if I want to, right? 😉
Second problem I had what deciding between a pattern mash I had in mind or just sticking to the original Drama Dress options.
Well, the day I was sewing I was feeling cold and the hack involved a deep back, so cute Peter Pan collar it was! haha Plus, I don’t think this sweater knit would hold the back the way I wanted it to… So the Bowlicious Drama goes back to the TO DO list!
The only mod/adjustment I made to the pattern is cutting the sleeves between short and 3/4 lengths and doubling the height of the cuffs.
I also omitted the pockets. I usually do with knit dresses because I can do without the extra fabric bulk around my hips.
I love the freedom of movement this dress gives me! It’s flowy, but it has enough fabric/weight to keep it in place so I don’t flash anyone. 😀
I also tried it with a small belt and love the look!
I placed it both under the bust and at the waist. And will definitely be wearing it both ways.
Ok, so under bust might be my favorite… 🙂
Even though I love this full skirt version, I still wanted to see how the Slim one would look like, so I pinned the excess fabric to the front and back, alternately.
And now I’m more confused than ever!
Should I stick to the full skirt? Or should I trim it down to the Slim skirt?
This doubt is the reason I didn’t completely finish my hem yet… I don’t know what to do!
I don’t have any more of this fabric, otherwise I’d make another one! (yep, this is how bad I am at making decisions! lol)
Help me out, hive mind! Which one?
I’m probably just overthinking this and should cut another one, making it Slim skirt this time… right? There
