Do you own this pattern? If the answer is no, why not? I do have to say it is one of my favorite dresses. I've made it at least 4 times and between DD1 and DD2, they steal it from my closet, so I will continue to make more. It is that good!
Every view I've made has been B. I love C, but find those cute little sleeve slits hit me awkwardly, so I end up hacking those off and making an elbow-length dress.
I could just use a different pattern, but why? I've worked out all the fitting tweaks, so I just keep trucking on with this one.
DD2 swiped this dress from my closet. I was glad she wanted it and has worn it! It looks cute on her but was fitted for me. I will continue to work on fitting her as time allows.
I like to stabilize the neck area in knits by first stitching a layer of staytape to the neckline with the edge extending barely past 5/8". When you fold the neckband to the inside and topstitch it in place, it more than covers the slight edge of the tape you used to stabilize the area.
I also use double sided fusible stay tape by SewkeysE on the sleeve and lower hems. That stuff is pure magic!
DD2 loves this dress. I am happy she wears it and enjoys it. I am sure there will be more garments made from this pattern.
Thanks for reading!
