Do you have a tried and tested sewing pattern? One you return to over and again? I have an extensive pattern stash with vintage and current patterns. Because of that, I rarely remake a pattern for myself, preferring to work my way through what I have.
The Cirque Dress, Vogue 9112, is a rare exception which I have made several times for myself and a few for friends.
Gratefully, I have had to retire my versions of the dress because of continual wear. When I saw the Petals and Pots collection by Riley Blake Designs, I knew it was time to add mixed print Cirque dress to my wardrobe.
I chose 1-yard each of Weave Mustard, Geometric Blue and Main Blue from the collection.

This is such a fun dress with this mix of fabrics!
It gives that refreshing feel for which I was hoping.
The lines of the dress highlight the fabrics so well.
I modified the collar of the pattern so it is fully lined with a contrast that can be flipped
and folded to reveal one side or the other.
In addition to this being a fun quirky dress, it also has pockets!!!!! If that doesn't make this a winner, I don't know what does.
The weather here is too chilly to get daily wear from this one dress until it warms up consistently. When the temperatures hit those characteristic triple digits, I will be ready.
