|First of all it a downloadable pattern, which is great for folks like me living far away. It is only possible to print it out immediately, you can't save it on your computer, so take that in mind. |
The Neue Mode patterns don't have seam allowances, and that is good, much easier to trace, I am planning a whole post on that soon. The pattern has a LOT of ease. I tried the basted dress wrong on wrong side out and just pinned the seams to fit me close. It took about one cm from every seam (and there are 6 of them (not including the shoulder seams adjustments). It's about a size and a half less, I think? So yeah, keep that in mind.
I did not make lining like the pattern suggested cause I wanted to keep it light weight and wearable in August. I will definitely make this pattern again, maybe take in fabric in the sleeves too and add lining for the fall version.
