Today we’re hearing from another Melissa, new sewing team member from A Happy Stitch who shows off why the Pocket Full of Posies dress is perfect for so many body types.
Hey everyone! I'm Melissa Q. from a happy stitch and I'm so excited to be on the Blank Slate Pattern team!
I surprised myself when I decided to stitch up this Pocket Full of Posies Dress from Blank Slate. It looks so adorable but I couldn't help but worry, "Really? Isn't a knit dress with hip pockets going to emphasize my already-substantial hippage?" "It looks amazing on the model but will it look frumpy on me?" It just looked so darn cute and sexy that I threw my worries to the side and took a leap of faith. I've been struggling to find fresh, modern garments I could sew for myself and this dress looked perfect. I couldn't resist, it was calling my name. And, I'm so glad I did! Click here to learn more.
