Description

I finally made the Azalea dress and I am happy with how it came out. It was a very easy pattern to follow. It came out a whole size larger than my actual measurements though so I had to take 2" from the side seams. It came out great anyway!

Material Notes

black double knit, white and red woven cotton.

    Very Very nice! I must let you know that I looked at all the Azalea dress variations, I picked yours as my favourite! It looks so nice, and the fabrics are great together. I dont realy like the neckline, I prefer the real patterns neckline, but it really dosent matter when you have a knockout dress like yours! I love it!

    I had an extremely low desire to make this dress due to its looseness, but after seeing yours – WOW!

    I also like the belt under bust much more… I have something with empire-line dresses. :-) It’s really great.

    OMG, I can´t believe its the same pattern that I downloaded weeks ago! I thought it will turn out pretty, but yours is couture! I keep it in mind when I start mine, thanks for sharing this color idea!

    Very lovely! And I like your version with the sash below the bust instead of at the waist. Looks more flattering..I have fabric in mind for a dress of my own! Thanks!

    I really like what you’ve done with Azalea – the fabrics work so well together.

    I’m with escorpio, the more I see this the more I think… gotta have one! I like that people are using belts- the potential tenty-ness was what was putting me off. Your fabric is lovely!

    The more I see this dress the more I want it. You’ve done an excellent job and I think this dress might move into my to do-list, good thing summer’s coming up.

    My favorite Azalea yet! Really pretty woven fabric and the combo of colors is both simple and stunning. I like the touch of the longer black under-piece (not sure what it is called).

    It’s so pretty! I found there was a significant difference between my size and the finished measurement printed on the pattern. I went with the finished size rather than my size and made a muslin to fit – no adjustment needed. So far (touch wood) I’ve gone with the finished sizes rather than mine – I guess I like clothes to fit a little closer!! I love the colour combo of your azalea; it makes me want to make another!
