Description

I’m actually really surprised with how quickly I can make sewing patterns now. On average, I’ve gotten it to 3 hours max with any sewing pattern I need to make. Pretty good!

It’s almost an exact knockoff of a 60s Pierre Cardin dress. I followed more of an armhole princess style versus making the style a little more straight from the armhole. In retrospect, the straighter seam might be easier to sew in that area.

Overall, the shape came out even better than I thought it would be!
