I’ve been missing sewing from my Ottobre Design magazines. When the latest issue arrived, I was bound and determined to sew at least one item from it and the Three-Way Dress seemed like a great place to start.
It’s essentially a sleeveless peasant dress or pillowcase dress but it’s Ottobre and thus cooler. LOL! It was a really quick project and I had fun picking out the fabrics.
Really my only complaint about the dress is the neck tie. It’s supposed to gather the front and back panels but it doesn’t actually keep them gathered and that just bugs me. Plus the ribbon is a bit too long and I’m concerned about it being a choking hazard. I’m thinking about doing a combo elastic-and-ribbon thing with some anchoring stitches to resolve both issues.
Miss L, of course, thinks it’s the most beautiful thing she’s ever seen. There was a small amount of bribery involved in getting this photo, hence the very obvious case of bedhead.
Overall, I think it’s a great summer dress and will be a wardrobe staple all through these hot, steamy days.
