I must admit that I really like this Laurel. I was a bit apprehensive at first, Laurel is not the kind of dress I usually wear. I like rather tight fitting clothes and that’s not what Laurel is about. However, I needed a pattern without too many darts, so as not to break up the roses on the fabric too much.
I made some pattern alterations. I did a sway back adjustment, I also took the back neckline in, just a little bit though. I think I lengthened the dress a bit, but I’m not sure, since I chopped the pattern up to create the bottom tier…
I used a blue stretch cotton for the sleeves and the bottom.
PS I forgot to iron this dress before taking pictures… But the wrinkles really show how much I love to wear it! Hah!
