The pattern was traced two years ago but the sewing was postponed few times… probably neither me nor pattern were ready to become friends:-) But I did want to make it. I didn’t like the photo in the magazine and just guessed by the drawing that the outfit could be nice because has few of my favourite details. At last when I solved the problem of saving the quantity of the necessary fabric, I cut the dress and sewed it. I’ve got pretty result but the model needed certain changes for better fitting.
I feel very comfortable wearing the dress, it has soft fitting and creates very womanish gentle image (at least it seems to me:-))
My ideas as for the sewing are here .

Material Notes

Thin well-draping stretch viscose blend. The choice of the fabric is very important.

      Thank you, Mary, I liked the design at once but wasn’t sure if it’s worth efforts, had doubts to the very end. Finally I am glad the time and money weren’t wasted:-)

    Your dress is beautiful and I like this beautiful blue color. I tried this pattern too. I quite stuggled with the fit and did not really succeed. I should try again as I really love the style. So I’m going to read your blog post about it…

      Thank you.. I will be glad if it is helpful. The design is worthy but needs modification which is individual, I described the main points.
