Holy crap you guys, WHERE did November go? Did you ever have one of those months where you just look around and go, “Did I nap or something?”…Yeah, that was November. So, here it is, my pattern review for November on December 2nd.

So this month, I decided on The Anywhere Dress from Go To Patterns (affiliate link)

This has to be one of the easiest dresses I have ever made. Ever. Like almost easier than a pillow case dress. It’s true to size and according to G, very comfy. As I was making it (under 3 hours INCLUDING printing and assembling the pattern), I was already planning my next couple of dresses. Is that bad?

I chose to make the cuffs contrasting to match the bow I added to fancy pants it up a bit. This was her Thanksgiving outfit. But, and here’s the awesome part, I paired it with leggings and she has worn it to school.

Here are some pictures of the finished product.

A word about that liner. I just used this method to do the hem in a contrasting fabric. No one will really see it, but I will know it’s there….The facing is done in the same stripe as well.

So if you’re looking for a quick, basic, fantastic project…go buy this pattern!

Listening to: Well, Christmas music since it’s after Thanksgiving.

Drinking: Yes, it’s after Thanksgiving.
