I made this dress this week for a friend's wedding and a night out with my man.
I chose a reproduction print that is 100% cotton. It is pretty hard to see in the photos. The dress is dark purple squiggle lines outlined in red. The dress is fully lined in a coordinating red cotton.
I chose View D, without the bow. I cut the pattern out according to my measurements against the pattern suggestions for sizing. I had to take in the dress when I was finished with it through the bodice and I had to shorten the straps by about an inch. I would recommend a muslin fitting first if you plan on fully lining this dress like I did. After I took it in the finished inside wasn't as pretty. From the reviews I have read about this pattern, this seems typical for this pattern and others suggested using your upper bust measurement...too bad I didn't see this until after I was done! LOL. I still am pretty happy with the way it turned out.
Things I would change: A longer zipper!!! I would also cut the bodice atleast a size smaller and shorten the straps.
Here is the dress!
I would love feedback!
