Variations on a Theme M7160

When I first saw this pattern I liked the simplicity of the design. I reasoned it could be made several times and each dress would still remain unique.

M7160 in Green:

Because of the pattern in the fabric I tried to match the bodice in a manner that would be symmetrical.  As you can see in this pic:

The dress is very comfortable, wrinkle resistant, and has pockets! Cute and quick, what more could you ask?

 M7160 in Purple:

I look at this version of the dress as my "muslin", being that it was the first of the three dresses that I made. I am happy about the result and only made minor adjustments before making the other two versions.

M7160 in Yellow:

As you can see, the vibrancy of the fabric pattern, gives this dress a personality of its own. It can easily be accessoried into a "Sunday" dress or modestly worn on a weekday afternoon.


This pattern has very easily become one of my TNT's (tried n true). I will make more version whenever I come across fabric that I think will lend itself to the simple design.

Until next time, take life one stitch at a time....
