Am I wrong or does it look like no one has made this yet? I would love to see photos of finished products but can’t find any. Is this because I am a newbee and don’t know where to look or seriously has no one made this incredible dress yet?

    I made it and you’re right, it’s a wonderful pattern, and so would the dress be if it had turned out right but for some reason, from the waist down, the dress started to twist on me so instead of having the centre panel nicely centred, it veers off to the left and the back seam twists round to my hip. The top half looks super which is why I haven’t thrown it in the bin yet as I’m hoping to work out where I went wrong and put it right. I’m guessing it’s something to do with the way I attached the lining and facing and am going to remove them and see if it hangs straight without, otherwise maybe I need to give more allowance to the skirt part. No idea. Will definitely try making it again though if the above doesn’t solve it as I can totally see how flattering it will be when made properly, it looks incredible when I drag the bottom half to its proper position on me.

    I just bought the fabric for it, and I would love to hear from anyone else who have made it. Especially, I wonder if I should add a lining. The pattern doesn’t call for it as far as I understand. I will make the dress in silk taffeta. Does anyone have an opinion?

    I guess it depends how often you plan to wear it – the lining helps prevent sweat marks showing on the fashion fabric and with silk, sweat marks would show up clearly i think.
