I made this for my daughter for Christmas, luckily she and I are the same size. It’s only the second garment of my own design, and it turned out quite well, though It went through several permutation with as much seam ripping as seam sewing. I really need some basic design classes, so this isn’t so hard. The fabric is a beautiful two-way stretch gauze that I’ve had in my stash for a very long time, and I knew it would be perfect for a bohemian style dress. Because this dress fit’s so well, I will probably make it again, though I will have to recreate it from scratch because the pattern I built was altered extensively, but I learned a lot.
