I recently had the pleasure of sewing up the Jukebox Duet Everyday Dress by FLOSStyle. You can find this pattern as part of issue 7 of One Thimble (affiliate link). I chose do do the ‘Disco’ view, which is sewn from woven fabric.
The pattern itself is quite simple; there are only 2 main pattern pieces. The construction, however, is genius. When I first read the instructions for the back placket, I was really apprehensive. I usually like to visualize each step before I sew (and cut!) but I had to blindly follow the instructions and can’t be more pleased with the final result.
Of course, each project can’t be completely without mishap, and my serger blade nicked the front neckline as I was finishing up. So instead of scrapping it all, I sewed a small decorative placket on the front to cover up the gash!
The fabric is some beautiful quilting cotton from a brand new store to me, Zoey and Bean Fabrics. The greatest part about them? They are local to me (but they do ship)! They carry a variety of high quality designer cottons and curated collections. I chose ‘Steel Hearts’ and ‘Fox Heads in Steel’ by Dear Stella. I can’t wait to plan another project so I can buy some more of their gorgeous fabric!
