|I cut a size 6, and the fit is pretty spot on. According to the size chart, I should have cut a 10, but that just seemed way to big to me considering this is stretch fabric. I honestly don't think I would even size up in a non-stretch fabric. I've got plenty of breathing room in this one!|
Next time, I think I'll probably take out about an inch in the center back. The collar is a bit droopy back there, and I definitely have more fabric in the back than I do in the front.
I hacked about 6 inches off the length of this dress...and I may even do a couple more in my next version. I only used about 1.75 yards of fabric, so if you're a bit taller than me and you have 2 yards of fabric, you can still make this fabulous dress!
The most major changes I made to the Instructions were:
I didn't use bias binding at all. You guys know how I hate that stuff. For the neckline, I did something similar to Megan Nielsen's method of attaching a neckline band, and for the sleeves I just serged the raw edges, folded them under, and topstitched.
I didn't interface the collar.
I stitched the collar to the neckline, and then understitched it to the bodice neckline to stop the serged edge from rolling outward.
I used my fabric to make a loop for the button instead of using cord. I stitched it on at the end instead of under my binding.
I did a rolled hem on my serger
