Your dress turned out great! I just bought this pattern today and for Halloween I'm going as a German bar maid. I'm making my fiance go as a bar maid too (you should see his huge German legs! Too funny).

Very cool! I love the red skirt fabric. Plus, the mug adds to the "wench"-ness. ;-)

Great costume! I want to sew a costume - but have no event to wear it to!

This is such a fun costume and very authentic looking. Good choice to adjust the sleeve. Now you're all ready for the big night. Let's hope you're not expected to serve the drinks!

Your dress is definitely "wenchy". It is exactly the word I thought of as soon as I saw the picture--without reading your review. I like the 2nd set of sleeves best--adds to the wenchiness.

Don't we all need a good wench costume on occasion? I like your improved sleeves better, but this is a great costume all around. Nice work.

Hot! That looks really good. I actually kind of like the first sleeves, wimpy and all.

Fun costume! You're right, the new sleeves do look better.

I'm so glad you reviewed this. It is my Halloween costume this year, too! I just haven't gotten around to sewing it yet. Good to see the tips :)

I actually like both types of sleeves, but I think the way you altered them makes the dress look more authentic (what I think a wench's dress should look like, anyway). I looked through all of your pictures, and I am quite impressed with your sewing skills. You also choose beautiful fabrics in just the right colors. You are very talented. Thanks for sharing. You have inspired me!
