I am certain you have seen a plethora of Casual Lady goodness popping up on the blogs you love (here, here, here, here and here to start). Andrea from Go To Patterns created this pattern to raise money for She’s Worth It–
This pattern was designed especially to raise funds and awareness for global sex trafficking victims. Proceeds from this pattern will fund a Sewing Collective in India for single mothers escaping the sex trade industry as well as a safe house for children in Cambodia at risk of being trafficked. We hope you enjoy and share so we are able to fully fund our projects. We are hoping to raise $15000.
I love Andrea’s heart to help stop sex trafficking in Cambodia. And I love dresses. So this pattern is perfect for a girl like me (I should note that this pattern can be made into either a top or a dress- I just chose the dress version).
Fabulous cause aside, I can’t recommend this pattern highly enough. It’s an easy sew, would be great for a beginner, and the cut is super flattering (especially if you’ve, say, had a couple of babies and don’t need any extra ‘cling’).
I’ve said this before- I love patterns that make wardrobe staples- I feel like this is one of those patterns. In fact, the striped fabric to make another Casual Lady dress is sitting on my sewing table.
You can get your Casual Lady Top and Dress Pattern at Go To Patterns.
ps- Want to see my awesome-est outtake- sunglasses on, hair everywhere, awkward pose… and Piper Jane, wearing her backpack, alongside. Oh boy!
you look so great in this dress! love it with the belt.
Thanks Kristin! 🙂 I love the belt too- breaks up the gray (and any potential ‘cling’- haha!). 🙂

I love how simple and flattering this dress is. I’ve been considering buying the pattern too (and I’m all for supporting such a great cause!)
Thanks Jen- it IS super flattering! I need to make a couple more… 🙂
You look gorgeous! Well done…and the belt is a great addition.
Thanks Chris! 🙂
Can’t wait to see the striped version you make!
Thanks Veronica- I’m branching out- trying to join all of you other fabulous printed-casual-ladies 🙂
Love it! The worth cause and the dress! Looks great on you, and its probably a great cut for my body too- here’s hoping- ill bookmark this page so I can find the pattern- after I go buy some knit fabric in my colors!
Thanks Karla! I think this dress would fit almost all body types well- that’s the beauty of it (well, and the great cause). 🙂 Send over pics once you finish yours- I’d love to see it/them!
So cute! I’ve been wanting to make one of these. LOVE the look Piper is giving you in that last picture.
Jill, I was totally channeling (ok, trying to chanel) you on this one. I feel like you rock in the knit dress department. I was also trying out your modeling tips when Adam was taking pictures (shifting my weight, bending my elbows and knees, etc). 🙂
Ha! That’s awesome!!! You did a great job 🙂
And YES- isn’t Piper funny? That girl… 🙂
Kirst! Love this one!! Adam’s trying to make me get rid of my sewing machine. Depending on how easy the pattern is, maybe it’ll be my pitch to keep it. Can’t wait to see it in person, if spring ever gets here…
Oh Spring… why aren’t you here yet?
And this won’t help, but you can always borrow my machine!!! 🙂
wow- you are beautiful! Love that last picture, seriously adorable (not what I would call an outtake!!) 🙂
Haha- Rachel, thank you. I feel so awkward in pictures! Glad that doesn’t come through. 🙂
Thank you SO much for making this and posting! Much appreciated!
This dress is awesome and you look great in it!! I definitely need a dress that fits in a “I’ve had a few babies” sort of way. But before you said that it looks like YOU are cut in that way, not the dress. You look great! 🙂 Ps, love the belt with it. Looks so comfy.
Erin, I just saw this sweet comment. Thank you. 🙂
