OOTD: Side Gathered Dress + Sky High Booties



Hi Darlings!

I am feeling well enough to get dressed and leave the house, lol! The hubby is not well yet ;-( but our son is doing much better. Today's OOTD is an oldie but goodie that I made almost two years ago. The pattern, which was V1020, is no longer available but you may have some luck getting one on Etsy or ebay.

If you want to get the same look you can always use V1314 which is very similar except that it has long sleeves and gathers on both sides. I made it using a really heavy double knit that snaps on the body like nobody's business! Similar fabric can be found HERE or HERE use your code dolls! "MIMI10"

  3. One quick question Mimi. What type of lining do you use for your knits. This dress is really Killing.

    1. I didn't line this one but usually I just use another light weight knit to line my knits ;-)

    1. Ok ordered my material for this dress. Mimi, with me just looking thru your OOTD/DIY I didn't see any for a sweater knit fabric, but I purchased a sweater knit that I thought is cute, can you give a suggestion.

  8. what type of stitch do you use for your knits? My hem keeps popping when I try that peg method that you describe in one of your videos

  17. Your body is amazing and looks great in everything you wear! Once I get more familiar with my sewing machine I will be definitely buying your classes/tutorials.

  18. Hey sweety, did you put in a zipper or isn't that necessary if the fabric has enough stretch? V1020 says I should use a zipper but I don't see it in your picture.
    Thanx, all the way from Holland, Europe...
