Animal Print Dress - Simplicity 1358 View B

Hello my sewing mommas out there!! I'm back as promised with another pattern review.
In my previous post I talked about sewing view C if you haven't checked it I encourage you to do so. It is a maternity friendly pattern so if you are currently pregnant and looking for a pattern well this is the perfect pattern.
So today I'm going to talk about view B, which is a scoop neck, high low knee length knit dress. I had the perfect animal knit print fabric in my stash that I've been saving for a maxi dress but I loved the idea of a high low hem. Luckily I had enough fabric for view B!

I went ahead and cut size L which was a mistake because I had to take out 3 inches from the sides and 2 inches from the back. After I made the alterations I absolutely loved the way it came out. It had a nice drape and flow which made the design look great.
I really liked the final product, it's a simplest design but the animal print makes the dress pop.

Here are a few pictures of how the dress looked on me. It definitely works for my growing bump! (currently 25 weeks) I would definitely sew another one, but in a solid color. Hope you all enjoyed this pattern review, and get sewing for your bump.

Pattern: Simplicity 1358
Pattern Description: Scoop neck, high low knee length knit dress.
Fabric: Cheetah knit print similar animal print here
Pattern Size: I cut a size L, should have cut a medium because I had to cut 3 inches from the sides and 2 inches from the back.
View: B
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once completed? After a couple of alterations it finally looked like the photo on the pattern envelope.
Would I sew it again: I would sew just one more in a solid color.
Would I recommend it: I would definitely recommend this pattern but work with light knits.​&lc_pid=Promo-13738&url=

Women's Watches: Where to Shop for Unique Timepieces

Tick tock, tick tock. Time is slowly creeping up and I'm making sure to make the most out of it. As a mommy of two, I stop and stare at my two beautiful daughters I began to reminisce on the day they were both born.

Boxy Charm/February Unboxing+Review

It's BoxyMail Time, this month's theme is Galaxy Glow. It is definitely giving me all the Space Jams vibes. If you aren't familiar with BOXYCHARM it is a beauty subscription for $21 a month. Usually you get 5-6 full size products! Based on the theme I thought that the products were going to be vibrant, glowy, or have a neon effect. There were so many variations on their IG that I was not sure if I was going to like this month's box. The five items that were included in my box were a highlighter palette, shimmer veil, eye pencil, glitter, and trio brush set.  (Disclaimer: this review is NOT sponsored by BOXYCHARM, I bought this with my own money, all opinions are mine.
