It is a really very nice feminine pattern that has perfect fitting. The pleats want some time but I guess it’s worth doing anyway and it’s nothing comparing with the perspective to sew them every time before washing or cleaning the dress:-) So I’d recommend the fabric with synthetic additions to keep the pleats’ mode.
My only change – lengthened sleeves: my fabric is pretty thick and I don’t like 3/4 sleeves for cold season. Besides, I think it balanced the pattern better.
I’m very glad with the result:-)
Thick jersey, very very red! Not sure what fibre is used. According to the price it’s some p/a but I ironed it with hot steam and nothing bad happened. The fabric is also very pleasant to a body and makes you feel completely comfortable in such a fitting dress.
