Hey everybody – Brittany here from www.brittanyjjones.com and I’m sharing another Shoreline Boatneck (aff link) make. Clearly I like this pattern a lot! My first make of this pattern was for a top. I loved the outcome of it especially with the pearl embellishment I did to it. So I decided to try it out again but this time using the dress view. You guessed it……I love this one too!!
This dress is a favorite of mine for many reasons, mostly because it’s so comfortable and easy to wear every day, all day. Being a wife and mom of 4, having easy, versatile pieces are key in my wardrobe. I love that I can wear this dress around the house with my slippers while I sew, throw on some sneakers and make quick run to the store, or pair it with a cute block heel for church.
I made this dress using a Liverpool Knit. Liverpool is one of my favorite fabrics to work with. I love the weight of it and the texture it has. If you’ve never worked with it before, think ponte knit with a crepe texture. It’s sooo good.
I cut the XL for this dress and made no adjustments to it. To take the dress up a notch, I made a simple tie-belt. I think it makes the dress even cuter.
One of my favorite things about this pattern is the neckline. I decided to stitch the facing all the way down instead of just tacking it to shoulder seam, and I really like the way it turned out.
I love everything about this dress. The fit is great, it’s super easy to sew, and it has many different styling options. I can definitely see myself making a couple more of these to add to my wardrobe!
