YAY! The Women’s Solis is here, and it’s AMAZING!

I’ve always looked at the kids’ version of this dress and dreamed about making one for myself. And now I have and am soooooo happy with it!
I love the how the bodice fits and the racer style back. This is one make-you-feel-good-about-yourself dress!

The pattern comes with different options which is always great.

  • Empire waist with a gathered skirt
  • Normal waist bodice that can be paired with either a circle or a pleated skirt
  • Pleated tunic option
  • Pockets!

I made a normal bodice with a circle skirt, in size 44 graded to 46 at the waist and added 2″ to the bodice and 2″ to the skirt length. This dress fits like a dream!
The fabrics I used are stretch velvet for the main and CL for the lining and back straps.

And because you can’t wear a circle skirt and not twirl around in it, no matter how old you are… Action shot! 😉

Ok, one more because it’s FUN! 😛
