When I saw the August magazine I knew I wanted to sew the dress number 131 and ordered the fabric though the internet.
I had to lengthen the pattern from the short version to long version and added 7cm to the top. However, when I tried it on the first time the top part was way to long and finally, I needed to take away the 7cm again. Because it is wrapped, now the upper part did not fit properly to the skirt anymore. I had to redo both parts a couple of times and it was a hassle getting the top wrapping right, without it standing out in a strange way.
I like the result now though, even though the hems of the top do not quiet fit the hem of the skirt wrapping. I sewed a snap-button at the top to make sure it stays closed.
