I’m so ready to sew this Catarina dress pattern!

The Catarina dress pattern is a very simple to make since there is little to no alterations that needed.  This dress will make the perfect evening cocktail dress and will go perfectly with the fabrics that I have been holding on to for some time now! At first glance, I saw all of the amazing things I can do with the dress pattern such creating a casual dress for spring or something cute that can be layered over a pair of leggings.

My Sewing Supplies & Fabric

I’m ready and set to sew!

I have everything I need to begin creating this gorgeous dress!

The only thing I am doing differently in this sewing project is adding a lining since the main fabric is somewhat see through in the sunlight. Plus I want my dress to have more structure. Lining instructions is not included in the pattern but it is not difficult to do.

Sewing Specifics

What fabrics should I use?

Seek fabric that will give nice drape for evening wear such as silk blends or rayon blends. For casual or summer, dress cotton lawn or voile will do.

Other Great Ideas!

This dress is so versatile it can be shortened in length and worn with a pair of leggings. It an also be layered with a button down shirt and tied at the waist.
