Like almost everybody who owns a “Twinkle Sews” book, I immediately planned to make the “Next Big Thing” dress when I got this book for my birthday.
I had doubts in advance, though, wondering if it would be really wearable, and if I should leave the elastic in the front. I ended up with making no alterations, except for the skirt which I made less balloony, and in the end I am quite glad with how it came out. Already thinking about which Twinkle project to make next!
