I did it y'all! I kept my promise. Back when I felt obligated to give good reason for breaking my fabric ban, I promised I would make this chevron ponte from Girl Charlee into something like this dress from Mod Cloth.
After I got my fabric in the mail, I realized I didn't have a pattern that would work. When I began looking at patterns online, I was dissapointed to find that many called for more yardage than the two yards I had bought.
Enter McCall's 6754, pretty darn close to the pattern of the inspiration dress and I was pretty sure I could squeeze the cap sleeved version from the yardage I had.
I drew fitting advice from Mimi G (isn't her striped version killer?), especially regarding the sleeves. I pinched about 2 inches out, just like she mentioned doing.
This dress is a smidge shorter than I would prefer, but I was concerned about my fabric restrictions and didn't dare lengthen it while cutting.
So, what do you think? Have I done my penance for breaking my fabric restriction because I simply HAD to have this knit?
