Let me show you my new summer dress I made with the Riverwalk Dress pattern from Seamingly Smitten.
Super fast to sew, you can use wovens or knits. I used a fabulous border print knit from Walmart, of all places. It’s actually a really great quality, a nice drape and not too thin, and has washed well so far. I have a friend you used to joke that there were two Sears, the regular Sears where you’d buy boring whatever, and then Sears Actually, where you somehow would find something amazing and cute and when someone would ask you if you got it from some hip little place, you’d say, “No, Sears, actually!”. I kind of feel like saying that about this fabric: I got it at Walmart Of All Places!
And it was $2/yard. Crazy. I bought it a few months ago, with no particular project in mind. When I saw the Riverwalk Dress pattern, I knew it would be the perfect thing to show off a border print. And I love how it turned out!
The Riverwalk is a women’s pattern with a great size range of 0-26, that flatters pretty much any body type. There are a couple of different options, including various skirt lengths. I extended my skirt length even further than the pattern options, making mine a maxi.
I really wanted to belt my Riverwalk, but have yet to find a belt that I really like with it. There is an option in the pattern for a sash, and I may end up making one out of the purple border. Maybe. Or I will just keep wearing it as is. It’s super comfortable and easy to style. It’s just a perfect pattern for summer, then throw a jacket over the top, and some boots on your feet, and your set for cooler weather, too!
