Finally made the Malvarosa! So happy with it. What a fun little dress! More on the blog
The info you may find useful:
Pattern: The Malvarosa dress by Pauline Alice – Pauline also designed the Cami dress
Fabric: A boiled wool jersey fabric found at my local John Lewis (Welwyn GC)
For info, I used my normal sewing foot.
Size: 42 but probably made a size 38 in the end
Modifications: Less loose fitting and shorter. Also I made the hems more visible, but I may change that modifications. I am not sure it works.
Result: It is really a fun dress, very feminine. I made a more winter version, but I reckon it would be an awesome summer dress as well. I was wondering whether to make the pockets and I am glad I did – it adds to the fun size of the dress.
