I had this crazy fabric (the true color is the one of the last picture) in my closet for a while because i knew what kind of dress I wanted to make with it and I knew I would need a pattern to do it. So when I finally found a pattern that was almost what I was looking for (I use the top part of the blue dress, with the 3/4 sleeves on the tird picture, but used another pattern for the skirt) I went for it.
The pattern is New look 6723 and I have to say that it was trouble!!!
First time at doing princess seams and i don’t know why but it was really hard for me.
Also seam allowance included are not my thing at all!
But I think what was the most diffcult was the fit! I looked at the measurements of the pattern and found out that I was between sizes 12 and 14 (I’m usually more of a 10 it should have knew something was wrong) so I first made the dress like that and it was way to big.
So I redo it in size 10 and it’s better but I still have a problem with the sleeves in the front, can’t really move as freely as I would like to.
I’m a bit disappointed because I kept the fabric a long time because i had an idea in mind and I bought a pattern for that purpose and the result doesn’t live up to my expectations.
