|Pattern Description: |
Here's a breezy, relaxed sundress perfect for hot summer nights and days at the beach!
The Saltspring Dress comes in two lengths, a full-length maxi dress and an above-knee length dress. What’s neat about this dress is the construction. The bodice lining is cut shorter than the bodice pieces, so you'll never need to re-adjust the blousing at the waistline. You’ll always look effortlessly put-together!
Inseam pockets make this dress practical as well as stylish. The straps tie in a bow at the shoulders, making it easily adjustable.
Easy to sew, comfortable to wear!
Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller bust and waist, larger hips.
Sizes: 0-16 (all sizes are included in one pattern!)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
As usual, the instructions for Sewaholic patterns are basic but very clear, with no missed steps.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love how casual and comfortable teh dress is.
A printed cotton batiste from a local fabric store. Something with a little more drape would have been a bit better, but I intended this as a wearable muslin.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a straight size 10 without alterations, and only treated the straps a little differently.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'll definitely make this again next summer! It's a perfect pattern for warm days.
