Been wanting to make this dress for a while. It was really easy to make and I’m pleased with the end result.

    Lovely dress! I made this pattern in cotton voile and love it. I think I want to make it in a drapey fabric like yours. It is really lovely! Was it for a wedding dress?

    I just remembered i have actually made this pattern but mine really did not look anywhere near as nice as yours. I am so motivated to make it again now! I found I had to reduce the width of the skirt a fair bit as it just felt too puffy. Your skirt looks perfect though- did you reduce it at all? What material did you use for the dress? Also, when you wear this dress, do you find that the waistband crinkles up a bit? I’m a classic pear shape, and I found I had to shape it a bit for a better fit. Was this an issue for you at all?
