It's no big secret that I love color. LOVE IT. The more the better.
It's no secret that I'm addicted to all things peplum lol. It's horrible really lol but in a good way.
Enter the colorful peplum dress:
I decided to keep my shoes and accessories fairly simple since the dress was the show stopper.I ADORE my shoes because they are "my" color nude. I normally shy away from nude shoes but when I saw these I HAD to have them. They are Boutique9. I looked for them online but couldn't find them anywhere. I've had them a while.
Here is a cool shot of my photo shoot in progress that Jaelyn captured
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: 8-16
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? I followed these instructions step by step so for the review and they are very clear and well written.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the style of this dress.
Fabric Used: Stretch cotton sateen
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The original length of this dress is not flattering on me so I shortened it by 5 inches. I also thought the front opening to be a LITTLE less than modest on me so I tacked mine closed. Didn't want any oopsie moments lol
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't think I will make this again. Too many dresses, not enough time lol. I do highly recommend this if it is your style.
Conclusion:Great pattern. Well drafted and went to gether very well.
