|If you want a basic, straight forward pattern, this is it! This is a super easy maxi dress that doesn't take long to sew. I finished it in a day. The marriage of fabulous fabric and pattern is what made this dress turn out nicely.|
The sizing for this dress runs true to the measurements. I did not make any adjustments to it at all.
This dress looks like the picture of the pattern. It doesn't sag either. Sometimes wrap dresses open too much in the front. I don't have this problem with this design.
This dress is great for a beginner or an advanced seamstress. It is always nice to sew up a dress that looks fab and feels fab too! The instructions were extremely easy to follow, and it went together quickly.
Best thing about this pattern is that it is well written, and I believe that it will look great on many different types of figures.
I always hit a home run when I buy fabric from Emmaonesock. com. I love vibrant colors, and I don't always have time to get to a fabric store because of work. That makes Emmaonesock convenient for a working seamstress like myself.
The only pattern change I made is lining the dress. I used the short version of this dress for the lining. You can see the bright yellow in the pictures. I have found that you cannot see the lining unless I pose silly. I didn't want to do a full length lining because I wanted to make it light and airy. The lining is a mesh fabric. Full length lining would make the dress heavy, and in the sunlight, you can see the silhouette of my legs! My hubby enjoys that special effect!
If you're looking for an easy dress to sew up, this is it! It is a basic design that I think most women would look fabulous in. Also, light , airy fabric helps the dress hang nicely, and keeps it comfortable as well.
