This pattern...I almost lost all faith in humanity as I sewed it. I love the shape, the fact it can be made into a knit and I really loved my fabric. What I didn't love is HOW FREAKING LOW CUT THIS IS!!!
I can't remember what he said here, but it obviously struck me as funny.
I should have put a cami on under this. What was I thinking?
I do really love the bodice back and the way this snugs up at the armscyes. At least there is no gaping there!
My intent was to make this into a maxi but I cut the skirt out incorrectly and didn't have quite enough fabric. I ended up having to piece together the front of the skirt. It works, but since this is a wadder for me, I will make a note on the pattern.
I had such high hopes for this dress! This fabric, which is a Maggy London ITY knit, is just so wonderful next to your skin! Plus it washes, dries, and sews up so beautifully.
I doubt I will sew this again, but I am glad I tried it. And yes, I did make an FBA :(
Until next time!
