Fabric: Thrifted polyester, ~60c
Things done for the first time:
- First time making a dress
- First time adding armhole facings
- Tracing patterns
Changes made: Due to fabric restrictions, I made the dress quite short! It is 20cm shorter than even view 1! I also omitted the back zipper (can still get it on easily!) and the buttons on the front.
Changes I should have made: If I had more fabric, I would love to have made it longer, and matched the fabric on the seams too!
Overall I loved this pattern, and I think the fit is great, too! I’m looking forward to making it in some natural fibres for summer, and I would love to try one in the maxi length.
