I decided to make this dress after seeing many of the beautiful creations made by fellow members. I shortened the length and made the front facing a little wider.

    The dress looks stunning on you. I’m about to make it, would you be able to inform me what piece no 4 is? I assume its a slip/petticoat. Did you use it?

      Thank you KayJen! Piece #4 is the sleeve for the long -sleeve version of this dress.

      Made it up yesterday, used a knit from my stash. Unfortunately my fabric did not have enough stretch and the dress is tight! Will need to sell/trade this one because it is too little for me. I do love the pattern, so I will remake it for sure.

      Bummer! :( I’m sure your next one will be a success!

      Olga, I took your advice and widened the facing by 1/2". Next time I will widen it by one inch because I think it would make the lapels fold back nicer.

      I widened mine by approx. 1.5 inches. It definitely makes the folded lapels look better.

    Nice one Red.. Colour and style go so well together. I’ve half made the bell sleeve version but found the front neckline just didn’t look right and my ruching was well….. My spandex fabric might be just a bit to thick, maybe. I guess I should finish it?
