Dressy Talk Patterns Review

Dressy Talk is the Talk of the Town!

Tatiana of Dressy Talk graciously sent these pattern’s last summer. It’s a real shame it took this long to get to them sewn up. I’m happy to report how satisfied I am with the design and instructions. Here are completed projects  the

Dressy Talk  1101

This is an elegant maxi dress with an asymmetrical cut hem. Invisible zipper in the central back seam will allow you to achieve the perfect bodice fit even applying a non-stretchable material for your sewing project. The combination of a regular fit top and a loose skirt of the dress, which flows beautifully with every step, will emphasize your waistline and make it visually smaller.

The asymmetric hemline was a big winner and the fit was perfect. I used a lace fabric with tricot for the bodice and polyester blend for the skirt.  It’s a wonderful pattern, the lines on this design is very unique. If you’re okay with causing a stir, this project would do the trick. The use of higher quality fabric, would turn out quite amazing in my opinion. The fit was perfect, but do remember to check your pattern, to see if the seam allowance is added. My pdf is an older version which lacks this feature. I saw on Dressy_Talk IG that they would like to make an update to this pattern so it has layers and would include the seam allowance.

This is a relaxed fit cold shoulder top, designed for woven fabric. In my first attempt at a cold shoulder, I was happy that the instructions were very helpful. Although this is seemingly a simple design, I wanted to add a personal touch to the project. In order to break up the orange, black lace was added to the yoke. It’s a fast project and I have no complaints. I was happy that  a stretch knit and the fit was still good.

I’ve had this beautiful fabric for about 3 years, with no idea what to do with it. The fact that I had only one yard added to my dilemma. Bu when I decided to take on this project, I knew it would be a good decision. I love the simple design of this pattern, the hi lo hem is a fun detail which goes will with the cap sleeves. It’s the ideal project for new sewers and pros alike. 

Overall, I can honestly say that this company develops well designed and perfect fitting patterns with clear instructions. The illustrations are on point to guide you through your project, if you feel unsure with the written instructions. I’m excited to review their new shirt dress pattern which was recently released.

Happy Sewing,

Renata

    I love the cold shoulder top! It’s so cute, and the lace does a good job of breaking up the solid color and adding some interest. The asymmetrical hem is really cool. I’m not a fan of maxi skirts (short lady prone to tripping on all that fabric!), but the hem gives a nod to the style while moving in a much easier way. Fun! It’ll be good to have some warmer weather makes to look forward to wearing after the snows pass!
