Description

This is a very nice pattern, however it’s not a petite one. I’m 167 cm (5’5.74’’) tall and the pattern fits me pretty well.
I only altered the neckline (I have already made several dresses with a boat neckline).

Material Notes

Mercerised cotton poplin

    Hey I think your dress is wonderfull! I happen to have a problem where i am pear shaped. Do you happen to have this same issue and did it all work out? would you be interested in doing a brief tute on how to make the neckline ? it’s so cute!

    you nd it look wonderful!!!!!!!!!! i dont understand- did you cut the side pices together with the main pices? it looks as if the skirt and the top are made of one pice without the side pices……{did you cut pice 24 and 25 togethr?}

    I love it! I really liked the pattern in the magazine and was disappointed to see that it is petite, but now I can put it back on my list! Thanks for sharing!

    I like this! This pattern is also on my to do list. I was only doubting about making the short or long version. Yours is very inspirational. Great combination with the pink shoes.

    I must say that for a second or two I confused your photo to be the one from the magazine… you look like a model. great work! I really want to make this one, but I’m 1.73, so I guess I would have to alter it anyway.

    A wonderful dress! You made a very nice job with the seam finish. You convinced me. This pattern is now on my todo list. Maybe I will give a try to the shorter version of the dress.

    I was thinking about making this dress also. i liked the simple lines. I like how you added the bow. Nice touch!
