This dress is like a pyjama!I discovered the pattern brand I Am Pattern last year in a fair in Paris and feel in love with the dress the designer was wearing. It was the Apollon sweater dress and it looked so cool and chic at the same time (ok, her version was in a leather printed fabric, much more elegant than mine).
The pattern is really simple (fee pieces, easy construction) and it’s really fast to sew. I only used my serger (now that I finally gave in and bought one, I can’t seem to remember how I was able to survive without one) and I think it took me about two hours from start to finish. The fit is forgiving and it’s really comfortable to wear. There’s also a shorter version included in case you want to make a regular sweatshirt (I’ll try it soon).As for the fabric, it’s a black fleece from The Sweet Mercerie (almost half my stock comes from them), it’s warm without being to bulky. As all black is not my style, I used a fusible patch from Un Chat sur un Fil (it says something like “princesses, father & sons”).
