Terri at Sew Straight and Gather has done it yet again. I swear she can do no wrong. Her patterns are always so unique and so well done. The Andromeda Top and Dress is no exception. AND- she’s having an AMAZING Black Friday Sale right now. All single patterns are just $5 CAD! What a steal!!! I suggest heading over there right after reading how much I love this new pattern 😉
I tested the girls version but there is also a ladies- yessssss! The girl’s comes in sizes 2-14 and the women’s in sizes XS-3XL. They both feature banded top, tunic, free flowing dress and gathered waist dress options. Those sleeves make it so incredibly fun!
I made my first one out of pretty double brushed poly from Knitpop. It worked perfect for this pattern. I left the sleeves raw and did a simple neckband. This pattern could possibly be the quickest thing I’ve ever sewn! Just a few seams later and this beauty was done.
She’s worn it a few times since and always gets so many compliments. It’s so darling and definitely has that wow! factor.
Little sis was intensely jealous and was dying for her own. I’ve been crushing hard on stretch velvet lately and snatched up some gorgeous colors from Stylish Fabric. I used this pretty gold and I’m thrilled with the quality and great customer service I received. AND it was also a steal compared to what I’ve seen elsewhere. It was my first time sewing with it and I new this simple pattern was a great choice to begin with.
From cut to finish this was done in under a half hour (it helped my pattern was all ready from big sis- loving that they wear the same size!).
Can we talk about this goofy girl for a minute? She did NOT want to model but the second she got this on she was smitten. She turned on the super model moves like that! She kills me!
I’d say she likes it!
Make sure you grab your Andromeda- you can get the girls, ladies (Terri’s sweater-knit cover version is killer!) or the bundle. Don’t forget to pick up some of my other favs too- check out my versions here, here, here, here, and here.
