I have loved this dress since I saw it in July last year, I had my reservations as the sizing is tall but after tracing the pattern and measuring it to my surprise I didn’t have to make any alterations, and believe me I’m short. As the material was a little see through, I decided to line the whole bodice with a white chiffon, this eliminated the need for the bias strips. It was an enjoyable project and I finished it off with a lovely rolled hem on my new serger (having some interesting fun with that machine too)
I’m really happy that I have a maxi dress that finally fits, as shop bought ones were always way too long. Please sun start shining so I can wear it.
