Comino Cap Dress and Top

So, I just beefed up my summer wardrobe: 5 new garments all from the same pattern! This is the Comino Cap Top and Dress from Kitschy Coo. 

I had a lot of fun with the fabric much fun that my girls were getting jealous that I was the one getting all the cool fabrics I had just ordered from Girl Charlee. Too bad, bwahaha!

Well, as you can see, the main feature is the sweetheart style bodice - although I did do a single fabric version as well (see below).

I like the not-quite-sleeveless sleeves. And best of all, probably, is the overall fit: slim, but not quite fitted with an ideal waist-seam placement, which gives the skirt a nice skimming silhouette.

It may look daunting, but the sweetheart curves were really easy to sew. I pinned and serged all the way across. Topstitching helps neaten the seam, too.

The maxi skirt variation doesn't come with the pattern (maybe there will be instructions for it online at some point?) but I just, you know, made it longer and slimmer.

Considering how often I've reached for these garments in the just the first half of summer, I will probably make a few more single fabric versions.
