I think I have no other sewing project with so many errors. I cannot make my mind if I like the dress or not.
The sleeves are to be torn off and redone – i totally hate those, but I wanted to take pics the dress today so badly. :( Seems that this macaron was mad at me, that i decided to make the sleeves plain and in one layer. It almost got me crying. And the invisible zipper turned out to be totally visible zipper, and at the very end I realised that the skirt is shorter than I thought it would be. Bad, Macaron!
Otherwise I love the pattern and especially the pockets. I’m considering making an evening or cocktail Macaron by combining satin and lace.
