I saw a green dress earlier this year while traveling in Berlin. It was of course in a size too small and too short for my taste. So I looked for a green fabric when I got back and was thinking what kind of pattern will look good with it. When I saw the Neue Mode pattern I knew I could make it into a combination of Joan Holloway’s style and a Marilyn Monroe dress I was researching about. Read more about it on my blog –
Now about the pattern. First of all it a downloadable pattern, which is great for folks like me living far away. It is only possible to print it out immediately, you can’t save it on your computer, so take that in mind. The Neue Mode patterns don’t have seam allowances, and that is good, much easier to trace, I am planning a whole post on that soon. The pattern has a LOT of ease. I tried the basted dress wrong on wrong side out and just pinned the seams to fit me close. I took in about one cm from every seam (and there are 6 of them (not including the shoulder seams adjustments). It’s about a size and a half less, I think? So yeah, keep that in mind.
