I had a lot of troubles doing this dress.
1. the pattern was size medium (I have s or xs) → sizing down
2. the top garment (loden) got loose after sewing it flat, . . . . → a lot of taking in
But I’m very happy how it turned out, got a lot of compliments :-) and so comfy to wear!
And improved my skills → very proud of the neat and tidy sewn in backzipper & blind hem stitch
Thanks to angela kane for the niced pattern and the helpful videos on youtube, i think i will use the pattern maybe for friends, but not for my size again.
Top → walk-loden
bottom → Ikea fabric
black dress zipper, golden ribbon
