So, I wanted to try this pattern out, and boy, did it turn out a completely different dress. Not that I mind a very formal and retro dress with a lace collar…not at all. It’s just that there aren’t many days one has to look like a modest bride from the 80s. Was nice to sew stretch fabric for a change, though – fitting was a breeze.
The dress is fully lined due to the top fabric being very transparent…bring on the chilly summers!
