But not to be deterred I soldiered on.
Oh and boy am I glad I did as my thoughts turned out to be very very wrong!
I mean, look how well this drapes...
Even though I had made this for myself before, I wasn't taking any chances and tacked the sides seams together first and tried it on. Well, it fit like a glove and hung beautifully. My faith was restored! Don't you just love it when that happens?!
On writing my Sewing Pattern Review for this dress (HERE), one of the questions is "Would you make this again?" I would love the sleeveless version of this dress for summer, but as much as I adore this pattern I do think after 3 makes, it is sadly time for it's retirement. There are so many other patterns out there I need to be making...!
Thanks for stopping by :)
