    I can’t find the pattern! Do I use the original and just leave off the sleeves? Or is the pattern for the variation on here and I’m just blind and can’t see it??

    I really love this dress! The pattern results in a sleeved dress. What do I need to do to make a sleeveless dress? I’m sorta new to the sewing world.

    I wouldn’t associate someone being thin because they don’t eat healthy, just like some people have overweight problems, others, like my best friend, have problems keeping weight on. I agree that the model is very skinny, but maybe you should think about what you are commenting about before you post.

    Beautiful! I was planning on making my Shari sleeveless, but I was just going to make the dress without the sleeves, so thanks for the timely instructions.

    We started off sewing on the sequin (they came attached to a separate chiffon-like fabric), by removing sequins from the edge of the cut piece, in order to create a seam allowance. In the end we had to use a bunch of nailpolish to keep the sequin in place. (They unravel very easily, since they were all attached with one ongoing thread). Its a bit of hard work, but we feel that it paid off.

    I love this one. SOO elegant! amazing how a different fabric can do to a pattern…the sequins are hand sewn on?
