Retro inspired shirtwaist dress with a half circle skirt, sleeve options and blouse variation Pattern Sizing:
0-18 (I graded up to about a size 22) Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Most definitely! Were the instructions easy to follow?
As always, Colette's instructions are spot on and easy to follow What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love how flattering the skirt is how feminine and form fitting the dress is. Fabric Used:
Pink floral dots cotton lawn Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lined the skirt with cotton batiste and added an additional hook and eye closure at the waist. For me, after wearing this for a day, I think the bodice needs a few addtional buttons, so I'm going to add those. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I certainly will! I already am planning on making another cotton lawn one for my MIL and a couple of long-sleeved versions for myself for fall/winter. Conclusion:
Such a pretty and fabulous dress! It took me a little longer to construct that most dresses I make due to the color and buttons, but it is definitely worth it!
