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:-)

Material Notes

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.

    Дуже, дуже i дуже! Елегантно та жiного! Вам дуже пасуэ такий стиль! Я давно дивилась на цю сукню, але на моделi вона виглядала не дуже вдало. А от тепер в мене просто руки сверблять пошити :)

      Дякую:-) Ну вже якщо сверблять, то не варто відмовляти собі в такому задоволенні та конфліктувати із власними руками:-) Сукня гарна, але з довгими рукавами мені більше подобається: кращий баланс між верхньою і нижньою частинами – принаймні для моєї фігури.

    You look awesome in this dress! Fantastic fit. I like your choice of shoes with this dress. The way it’s modelled in the picture turned me off; but I think I’ll take another look at this dress. :-)

    Such an elegant ladylike dress, it fits you perfect and you look absolutely gorgeous! I must say, I like your version much more than the original in black.
