I know almost everyone and their sister have made this dress but maybe you haven’t so today I’m sharing my thoughts about it.
Is it easy to sew? Yes! I thought it was very easy. The only part that really gave me pause was the shirring for the back. I had never used elastic thread before so this was new to me but it actually worked. The dress was easy and also not too time-consuming, which is nice.
The fabric that came with the kit is Art Gallery’s Delicate. I feel like the kit was such a good value because it included 3 1/2 yards of fabric. I like the bright print. It feels a little more spring/summer to me but I feel like with a jean jacket and some brown boots it can transition to fall as well. I had plenty of fabric leftover and I even made my dress longer than the pattern specified. I’m fairly tall (5’9”) and I like my dresses to be a little longer than you usually find them.
