Style Arc Celine dress

From the first garment that I made at Sewjourn to the last – I finished the Style Arc Celine dress just before heading home last Sunday!

I have had this pattern in my stash for quite some time – and now I’m wondering why I didn’t make it up sooner! The description and line drawing from the Style Arc website are as follows:

CELINE DRESS: This is the dress of the moment, slip it on and tie the extended ends in a knot at the front or leave hang loosely for fashion statement. This dress can be made with a short sleeve or bind the armholes for a sleeveless version

FABRIC SUGGESTION & DESCRIPTION: Soft flowing fabric such as Silk or Rayon

I used viscose twill from Darn Cheap Fabrics – they still have it in stock, and I’m fairly certain that I spotted the same fabric when I dropped in to Addicted To Fabric in October. It was lovely to work with and has that softness and drape that comes along with viscose/rayon. And the colours – absolutely me!

I made size 12, but took a big tuck through all the pattern pieces at waist level to petite it. This required a little reshaping of the extended sides that form the ties. There are no zips or fastenings in this dress – it slips on easily over the head, then ties at the front for fit. It was beautifully comfortable at work on Monday.

Not much more to say – I love this style, and now I rather fancy a sleeveless version….

  1. Love these colours on you. Lovely dress.
    For a store with such a low rent name, Darn Cheap Fabrics has some lovely stuff, as you have shown. Makes me want to come to Melbourne just to visit it!
