I really liked the completed dresses for this pattern so attempted it in a stretch silver piece I had fallen in love with.
Sadly I only had a metre so I added in the black detailing which in hindsight I think makes it.
I would not suggest making it in stretch with a zip and lots of fitting as I ended up handstiching a lot and are still not 100% happy with the back.
As I am quite top heavy I altered the top to flatter rather than overtake with some shoulder tucks.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
