Ahm. Might not be the right sort of dress for me to use, since I have a wide chest carriage, slimmer hips and a couple of pound to many. Especially not with another two layers of shirts underneath. Even so, I chose this pattern because I needed my first dress to be easy to make.
The reason the tartan pattern is not matched together is not only that I was lazy, but that I bought a very cheap left-over piece of fabric (in good quality, might I add), that was barely large enough for this. Valid excuse! :D
BUT. Things aside, I’m over all pleased with this dress. Feels good to have made something actually useable, instead of cosplay clothes, haha!
