StyleARC Adeline Dress and more Alabama Chanin work




Adeline Dress

Hello!  Last week, I wandered a bit aimlessly into my sewing room and 3 hours later, I had a completed dress.  Has this ever happened to you?  It happened to me.



I cut a size 12 based on my measurements and made no fitting adjustments, except to raise the hem an inch.  This is an easy one-piece dress.  The only time-consuming parts are the neck and hem facing.  You can see in the above picture the hi-lo hem, very cute.  This is a heavy linen from my stash.  You can make it with a back seam or not; I had to add it here because I didn’t have enough fabric for 2 big pattern pieces.  I didn’t topstitch the neck facing, just tacked it down at the shoulder seams.


And now, some hand-sewing!

Wondering what to do with leftover jersey?  Make a scarf!  It’s a great canvas for surface embellishment!


I had some leftover stenciled blue jersey from my Alabama Chanin dress.  I cut a long rectangle and used some orange jersey from my stash.


It’s all simple hand-stitching, something to do while watching TV.


  1. Whoah! Your quick dress is great! I’ll have to take a look at that pattern. Great idea for a scarf too, especially those colours mixed together.

  2. Brilliant idea for leftover jersey! I shall have to remember that. And your dress is very chic for a mere 3 hours in your sewing room! I haven’t stepped foot into my sewing space since December, and am feeling the deprivation! I love the shape of the dress.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
