Paisley Corduroy Dress





I've had this stretch paisley corduroy in my stash for a few years.  It's one of those fabrics that you love so much that you are afraid to sew something out of it in case you make something that you don't love so much.  I call it Fabric Paralysis.  I don't know exactly what got me to get over my paralysis, except maybe just that I saw on the recommended fabrics on Simplicity 2927 that Baby Cord was the first suggested fabric.  I liked this design- especially the pockets that are worked into the curved seam, the curved sleeve hems, and the curved neckband.  I thought that the curvy paisley print just fit perfectly for this pattern.  It was very easy to sew.  Here is a close-up of the front neckband:


There actually is enough room at the neckband to slip this over your head, so I didn't make the button functional.  It is just sewn in place.  With the turtleneck, tights and boots, I think it will be a welcome addition to my winter wardrobe, and I'm glad to have one less fabric in my stash!

  2. I'll ditto that - I also love paisley, I have a self-enabling paisley feeling very jealous that your paisley is already showing itself off while mine is still waiting to be sewn up into a dress.... Your brown/teal paisley is beautiful, all the more so 'cause of being a very cute garment already.
