I absolutely loved this dress the moment I first saw the preview photos, and I’m so glad this one has the full, illustrated instructions because the draped loop pieces would’ve been really confusing to sew otherwise! But with them, it was really straightforward, though the loop does take quite a bit of invisible handstitches at the very end to ensure the gathers all site nicely.
I scaled this down from the Tall sizing to my normal size, and everything fit nicely in my muslin version apart from the long sleeve, so I ditched the pattern version and drafted my own here instead, which suits me much better!
