    That is stunning on you! Did you fit this before sewing it? Or did you jump in?

    You’ve done a great job, your zip and the fit are perfect.

    You can see how the sleeves are a lot better in yours ,. the pattern doesnt quite demonstrate them. I might make it now with some variation

    This is beautiful! What were some of the things you found challenging? I ask because I’m a fairly new sewist, but this is a dress I’d really like to tackle.

      Thanks :) Actually it was a bit hard to understand how to join the inside upper part to the outside upper part at the shoulders. Also when i first wear it, the entire top of the dress was too big for me so I had to fix it. This work was a bit difficult and takes time. But it’s a very nice pattern and worths a try. Personally I learned things trying to make this.
