This was my first time using an April Rhodes pattern and certainly won’t be my last. After completing the Date Night Dress this weekend, I had the following observations:
- Only 3 pattern pieces
- Full pictures
- Clear instructions
- Flattering fit
- Suggests shirring but does not provide a tutorial (I found a good one here)
- Did not include a step for staystitching the neckline which did stretch out.
More details can be found on my blog.
Next up for the November “From a Sewing Book” challenge will be either Colette’s Pastille or Truffle!
