Description

First try; made a few adjustments: widened the skirt to be a bit more like an A-frame. In the interest of time, I did not add the pockets, though I have them cut and intend on inserting them eventually. Also, I did not do the drawstring on the sleeves, but I have intention to do that, too.

I believe the dress is intended to be on the baggier side, though I will probably take in some of the back, which I feel is too baggy on me. I recognize it is not meant to be “fitted” with darts, so i will adjust this on the pattern for myself later. I also plan to hem it right at my knee, but currently it falls about an inch and a half below… minor adjustments, but overall I love it.

I didn’t understand the directions very well, so I sort of winged it. I drafted the facings, but I think I would probably create the collar, front and back yoke with the facings FIRST, and then attach the body second., using the SA on the body to attach the facings at the bottom.

The pattern is fairly simple, only a few pieces.
