    I’ve seen various versions of this dress (which I’ve been willing to make too, one day !) but yours is definitely my favourite.

    Thank you! I’m still learning (slowly and little by little) so your positive feedback is really valuable to me!

    It’s very important for a minimalist piece to look well made. It looks perfect :)

    You did a great job! This pattern is on my to-do list! I was a little concerned about such a high neckline. Do you find any issues wearing it?

      Thanks! The neckline actually lies right on my clavicle (I hope this is the right word for the two bones just below the neck) and I find it both flattering and comfortable. But I both made the FBA and fitted the waist a lot (took out about 10 cm!), which might have affected the neckline shape a little. I definitely recommend making a muslin (had I used the pattern in my size without fitting, it would have been really baggy) and drawing the new neckline in front of the mirror on it if you find the original uncomfortable – the dress would look lovely even with much lover “décolletage” :)

    Lovely job and your hand stitching is impeccable! This is on my to do list (which is very long at the moment!)
