It’s fall season and I’m still slowly accepting the change in temperature. So as the weather gets cooler, the slow transition to cold weather clothing sewing begins. I have been working on finishing up a few sewing projects that can be worn in the fall.
To create this dress, I used Iviye Goddess Gown pdf pattern. It was an easy pattern with a few pieces to cut. I used a rayon blend fabric to create the maxi version of the dress with a few modifications. I shortened the neckline by 2 inches because I did not want such a drastic deep cut. To make the dress long enough to cover my shoes, I added 4 inches to the pattern. To make the bottom of the dress a bit more dramatic, I modified the back pattern by cutting it in half and added inches to the width. That gave the dress more length in the back and at the bottom side seams.
The Iviye Goddess Gown pattern was an easy sewing project. It’s great project for a beginner sewer or for when you just need a stress free, simple dress to create. The dress is perfect for the spring, summer, and fall seasons and can be made with various fabric options. This is a pattern I plan to make a few more times.
Simple dresses with bold prints are always great transition pieces. They layer well with blazers and chunky sweaters. They work well with boots and even city sneakers. I paired my dress with an old denim jacket and some wedges, similar shoes can be found here. The fedora hat worn can be purchased here. The oversized sunglasses are sold out but there are a few on Poshmark.
How are you transitioning your wardrobe? Do you have any fall clothing tips to share?
