This is my first attempt at a printable pattern, and I picked the Minna dress. I thought a heavier fabric would bring out the gathers and pleats out more….well, I chose the waaaaay wrong fabric for that. It makes the dress look very bulky OOOPPPS – - > Ohhh well, lesson learned!!! But I really like the Minna pattern and will be attempting it again, as soon as I find the perfect fabric for it.
P.S – - – I still have to finish the neck line and straps so pardon my pins!
P.S2 – - – I used a lighter weight cotton for bias strips hence the yellow pickaboo…
Gray w/ gold accent heavy Polyester – - – BIG NO NO
