PATTERN INSTRUCTIONS: Very easy to follow, through the twenty something darts, lining, hemming, zipper it was all very clear.
PATTERN SIZING: This was the dress where I learned about sizing, finally! You can read more bout that here. I had to let out the thigh region a bit and now this dress fits like a glove.
FABRIC CHOICE: Oh yeah. I am so happy this pretty bird cotton has a home. There are no scraps from it at all, and it all just feels right. I am proud of my color coordinating and am really excited for a drop dress red dress to be added to my wardrobe. I would never buy this color, but am thrilled to wear it.
I did not save a single receipt for the course of two months and have nothing to report here. But since this was meant to be a stash-busting dress I'm comfortable
lying to you and saying this cost me zero dollars. Zero.
PERFECT OCCASION: Valentine's Day! 14 days until this number hits the streets if Madison. LOOK OUT!
WOULD I MAKE THIS DRESS AGAIN?: Is it bad that I want to View F next month already???? Can you picture a chartreuse-colored cotton silk blend? I seriously want to make every iteration of this pattern. Money well spent.
