What kind of fabric did you use? I used a 100% cotton floral print that I loved as soon as I saw it! For the ties I used Kaffe Fasset’s shot cotton in Vermillion.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I loved that the pattern was so feminine! The pink and red in the floral print is completely me. I work in a craft store, so I make an effort to wear something handmade every day, so this year I’ve made a lot of pretty sundresses. This is absolutely one of my favourites, and it always receives lot of compliments!
What thoughts do you have about the project? This was a great pattern for any level of seamstress. There’s no buttonholes or zippers to worry about, and not a ridiculous number of pattern pieces, but it looks so great finished, and is so wearable. The hardest part about it is the armhole facings, but if you take your tine and think about what you’re doing, it’s not bad. The instructions are very thorough, and easy to follow.
