This is the second time I've made this dress. Please see my previous review for most details. Here I'll focus on the parts that were different from view A - the armhole bindings, the sash and the lining.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
yes - if you haven't made anything from Oliver+s then you're in for a treat - all the instructions are outstanding.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the collar - especially the modified peter pan in this version. I love the zip and the fact that I did it successfully the first time!
I love the big sash which makes it feel special.
I love the weight of the dress - it has a very big hem and it's fully lined so it feels heavy, in a nice way - if that makes sense!
I didn't love fiddling with the armhole bindings.
Main fabric - waffle-type white cotton and quilting cotton for all the accents.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
none for this version.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes - this is already my second time sewing it. Yes, I would recommend it.
A perfect special occasion dress. It's not a quick and easy dress but the end result is stunning and special.
