I'm in the middle of making this, too! And it is super easy, but just too hot to iron the hem in right now. I'm doing it in a green quilting print with white trim and little white rabbit buttons.

Yours looks great! I haven't started mine yet, but I think I am going to try the muslin this weekend, if not this afternoon!

super nice!  How hard is it to sew on the binding?  I may try this dress, but right now, I've got several patterns to try before I buy another one.  How close did your practice dress come to fitting?

I'm working on a sundress for my daughter.  It's hard to fit, though the dress itself is not so difficult.  I worked on a practice run, though I didn't sew it completely.

You are inspiring!

Your price can be much less when Hancock's/Hobby Lobby run pattern sells.  WalMart will honor the other prices with an ad from the other stores.  I've never tried this, but have heard of others who have.

Great job!     catdaddytn

thanks Cheesy

the binding was really easy to sew. I thought it might be too thick, but with the type of fabric the bindings made from its fine.  It's easy to fold too it just takes quite a while to pin but thats just because i hate pinning things  Wink


As for the fit it fitted perfectly on the fist and second one thats why I'm considering making one or two  to sell since the way it wraps at the back aswell as the front makes it sit really nice and look fitted but be pretty adjustable too Smiley

This frock is gorgeous! And you have done such a good job on it too. I am going to bite the bullet and have a go at the dress even though it scares me slightly (but no scary zips! hooray!) but just not sure on which size to get. How did you find the sizing on the pattern? I presume the sizes are American sizes? I am in the UK too, but am willing to pay the  p & p for such a vision of wraparound loveliness.

I just bought the pattern at Hancock's $0.99 sale this weekend (our Walmart doesn't carry Butterick, I don't think), but I think I'm going to try to turn iit into a German type peasant dirndl look. Wurstfest (the ten day salute to Sausage) is a big deal in my hometown and I've never invested in the traditional (and expensive, if you change sizes frequently like I do) German eyelet blouse, lace up corset, and dirndl skirt, but I think this will imitate it nicely with quite a bit of fit variability, and without all those gathers at the hips.

I can make the front (flat) piece white eyelet, make the back bodice and the bodice that wraps to the front a dark material with some kind of embroidery, shape the front closure to come up a little higher under the breasts, turn the front closure to a lace-up style instead of buttons, and make the skirt a tiny floral print.

Do you think it will work?
