Houston, Texas, ...
Loose-Fitting, partially interfaced, lined, pullover dress (fitted through bust) has collar, collar band, side front, side back seams, front hemline slit, flared, pleated lower back, invisible side zipper and cap sleeves with bias armhole binding. “Whew!!!” That’s a lot of details!!!!
Let me just go over some of these beautiful details the pattern has to offer, and offered up exquisitely, might I add. All the details made for a lovely dress indeed!! See my further details at SewToFit
Alterations I made: For this size 14: I did a 1 3/4” full bust adjustment, 1/2” broad back, cut off 2 inches from the hem, gave myself 1/2” on the sleeve width (should have done 1.5”). Did a 3/8” sway back adjustment, and made the center back seam curve in to my back by 1” at the waist.
The fabric is the nicest linen, cotton, rayon. It has raised dots with a fine thread of gold going through it. I wouldn’t call it a pique because of the underside being flat. For the lining, I used a luxurious 100% Bemberg rayon lining from Fabric Depot in Portland, as part of their “ambiance collection”. Feels so beautiful on the skin.
