I made this dress in a heavy denim for autumn/winter use (to be worn layered over long sleeves and leggings). I left off the pockets and used buttons for the detail. The pattern was a breeze to put together, and I know I will be making a few more of these!! The only issue with the pattern was the front/back hems not quite lining up exactly (they were out by about 1 cm). I matched at the arm hole, pinned, snipped the hem to match, and called it done. 2 second fix! :) I also used buttons/button holes at the shoulder for fastening as I am not a fan of velcro. No pattern adjustments were necessary for this.
Jean-weight denim outer, quilting cotton liner. I pre-washed both for color fastness and to reduce shrinkage.
