I downloaded the Melissa dress pattern yesterday, bought this awesome fabric yesterday morning, and today it is already finished! I LOVE the fact that the patten comes with the seam allowances included. I just cut the pattern after pasting the printed pages together (and adjusting the sizes a bit because I am a mix of 42, 38, 36…). That saved a ton of time and was a real treat! I made quite a few mistakes along the way and struggled a bit with my overlock machine, had to do some adjustments for better fitting (girls with a modest bust need to tuck in more of the front piece so the fabric won’t hang out) – but I love the end result!!! Now I’m going to make myself a skirt off this pattern. THANK YOU BURDASTYLE TEAM! Great Job! It was so fun and easy to make. I want to try out more jersey patterns! It’s quite different from working with non-jersey fabrics. Tell me what you think!
