Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)


  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).

Dress for the Winter! (+pattern review)



Simplicity 1419

Pattern Description: Fit and flare dress

Pattern Sizing: Size 12

Fabric Used and pattern alterations or any design changes you made: It's hard to write a regular review about this pattern because I made so many changes. I used a knit instead of a woven fabric and totally ignored the keyhole options. I was looking for a simple dress and comfortable dress that I could throw on and this pattern helped me with that. Loved the pattern and would recommend it as a great wardrobe builder.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! I'm currently working on a second dress.
