I will be honest. When I first saw the Color Block Dress by So Sew Easy I thought, "there is no way I could pull something like this off. " Honestly, the curves, the hug, everything about it screamed that I could not wear it. But, I defied my thoughts and decided to jump on and sew up this dress. It had immediately thought that it would make a great 'little black dress' with some color detail. I needed to have little man help with the fabric choices, and I am loving how this turned out! I have a second one, alternated, cut and ready to sew. Perfect for date nights!

don't you love these pictures my 3 year old took? I'm impressed! :)

Now, I am really self-conscious of my momma tummy. I have that mommy pooch that seems it will never go away and anything tight fitting is just waiting for ridicule. All I have in my closet for dresses are either too small or are so loose fitting from wearing during pregnancy that I feel frumpy.  But I don't in this dress, I love it!

I tried on this dress the moment that I finished the side seams and I loved it right away! I felt great, beautiful, and didn't even care of my mommy tummy!

The pattern is so easy to tape together. No cutting needed witch is great.
The directions are easy to follow. I had never done princess seams before and this made it so easy. I used 4-way stretch for the black and this was the easiest time I had ever had with 4-way stretch.
Directions are provided to modify the sizing to fit your body type.
