I love this dress.
It fits me perfectly. The bust and waist worked out without any fittin it, making it tighter or making any new darts. The ony small little problem is, that if I wear it without the belt, the back doesn’t fit that good. But I love the belt, so that’s not a problem at all.
It was so incredibly easy to make. I don’t mean that it was fast, it just fit together perfectly. If there was a notch, it fit, the dart worked easily, even the curves fit toghether.
This was the first thing I made with a full lining, but even that worked out pretty well.
Pattern: Amy Butler Lotus Tunic
Fabric: 100% cotton from African Market, microfibre bedsheet for the lining, zipper
