I’ve been on the look out for a long sleeve maxi dress to wear to graduation, without much luck- until I came across this pattern and fell absolutely in love with it. But being a beginner sewer, I thought it might be a bit over my head.
Some parts were a bit confusing (the extensions to the ties) and it required a lot of work on the fit (I’m a petite 5 ft 2, and the pattern is for ‘tall’ people) which made me panic a bit.
