This was a great pattern.
I was a bit intimidated before I started though, it was rated 3 out of 4 for difficulty and there were alot of pattern pieces to trace and cut out….and not to mention an invisible zipper! I have never put in a zipper before so I learnt from a trusty resource – You Tube. Mine was not so invisible, hahaha, but the dress closes at the back and that’s the main thing!
The only adjustment I had to make was to increase the length of the neckband because it was really too tight under my arms. I also shortened the skirt.
I found the instructions to be very clear and I didn’t have any trouble making it…it was just time consuming – especially the neck and arm bands. But I am looking forward to making another one in plain white with the waisband ties and pockets.
100% cotton. Very soft and flowy, not stiff.
