Madison Color-Blocked Dress
a Designer Stitch Design
sewn by me.
I was hesitant to sewing a color-blocked dress. But, when Madison came out for testing, I knew I had to challenge myself and I am so happy with the results.
I sewed up my Madison version with the straight skirt option, 3/4 sleeves, and with the back exposed zipper. First time with color-blocking a dress and sewing with an exposed zipper. I used Ponte De Roma fabric. I found that a stable knit fabric works best with the color-blocking with the Madison.
A few tips I found very helpful for me in the fitting, is to sew a muslin first. I needed to sew my dress at least a few times before I was satisfied with the overall fit. So there was a lot of un-picking, especially once the exposed zipper was set in. While I love the exposed zipper, for my next Madison I will make one without the zipper option using the circle skirt option.
Color-Blocked the sleeves
I love the Madison and the color-blocked options.
The Madison comes with several sleeves options and two skirt options as well.
If you look at Pinterest you will see many options for color-blocked garments.
Looking forward to seeing your color-blocked Madison in the Designer Stitch Support Group.
Thank you, Ann Grose, once again for another Great/Modern design.
