Do you ever purchase fabric and hold on to it FOREVER, just waiting on the perfect pattern?
I allowed this fabric to speak to me. It told me to grab the best twirly dress pattern I could find, because it would surely be perfect lol
I can't express how much I love this dress. It's amazing how I find myself falling in love with sewing even more. I thought I would have a hard time finding balance between family, church, fun, traveling, Adrienne's Essentials, Stitched9 and just ME time but it's so easy. I think I'll do a video on this later this week lol.
Back to the dress lol.
I decided on pink or a shade of radiant orchid accessories. I love these earrings and necklace. I wore my favorite tennis bracelet and I took a classic black handbag.
My shoes I adore. They are Anne Michelle Rapture from DSW
Let me leave you with a couple twirly pictures lol
Man can y'all see that? My face. That's peace. Man. My heart. Whew. Ok. Yeah I need to do that video lol
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? These instructions are great until you get to the neckline and sleeves. I only read over them for the review. IMO it was confusing. I don't do mine the way they suggest so maybe that's why it was confusing. I have my own method lol.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the modern/vintage look of this dress.
Fabric Used: Stretch cotton sateen
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I shortened the dress about 8 inches. This dress has an extension piece. Once I added it on I shortened it 8 inches. I didn't like the original length of this dress. It hit me in a weird place.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I WILL make this again. I have a dress on my pinterest board that I want to make and this pattern is an exact dupe lol. I HIGHLY recommend this if you can find it. It's OOP.
Conclusion: Great pattern, love that is has cup sizes. Goes together great and I had a BALL wearing it!
