Blank Slate Catalina Dress

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

This is one of those makes that took longer to blog than to sew. The fact that it is making the blog at all is a bit of a surprise. I actually made this knit Blank Slate Patterns Catalina dress in the fall planning to use it just as a muslin. I honestly don't love this style on me, so I never made the dress in different fabric. Of course the right fabric might make all the difference. The Blank Slate Patterns blog is full of adorable versions of the Catalina dress. 

As soon as I paired this Catalina dress with a simple denim jacket, I knew I had stumbled onto something. Sometimes, a simple styling variation can transform a look. Even though this dress was destined for the giveaway pile, it may have a bit more life yet.

So, this is just a friendly reminder to take a second look at something you may have dismissed. Add a layering piece, scarf, or other style variation, and it just might surprise you!
