Can you believe this dress has 122 reviewers on Pattern Review and it has just been gathering dust in my sewing room for the past year? I was on the wrap dress fence…..not sure if it would work for my body type. I finally caved because how could 122 people be wrong? They were not…..I love this dress!
I used a jersey knit fabric from my stash. I have really been stash busting lately! I am thankfully it has a nice busy print because I did have a few issues with the neckline. I think the pattern just left the edge open with a tacking at the shoulder seam and a under-stitch. If I read that correctly, it didn’t work for me. The facing kept wanting to show itself off. I finally stitched it down about 1 1/2 inches in on both the top and the skirt. This worked wonderfully and the seams is pretty hidden in the print. Next time, I will read the directions much slower and see if I completely misread them.
Anyway, I am a huge fan of the pattern and will be making a winter version soon! Check out my blog for more info.
