I spotted this fun flannel fabric on Fabric.com (oh, how I love that place), and immediately knew I wanted to make a cold-weather dress with it. I used Burdastyle's Anda pattern to stitch it up, using elastic instead of a waist tie, and adding the pockets to the sides. Let me tell you: this thing is comfy-cozy! Just as you would probably imagine an elastic waist, flannel dress to be.
And because my favorite thing to do is add a cardigan or a blazer and some heels to any outfit and call it office appropriate, that's exactly what I did today!
What made this project all the more special: I sewed it in my parents' basement, on my mom's vintage Singer 301 sewing machine, as she did all my pressing for me. :)
