My first attempt at the Lydia pattern.
It turned out a tad too short!!( Because I made it knee length and it made me look 100 years old!! and then I cut it by eye, add to this a blind hem and wahla….too short dress:)), but other than that I was really happy with the fit.
I extended the sleeves slightly but that’s about it.
Sorry about the terrible photo!!
Toupinette for her inspirational version!!
