Just in the nick of time, my dress was finished for my sister-in-law’s wedding reception – and my frantic pace sewing to get it done was well worth it! I’m in love with this dress.
For this pattern I used a size 8 and made minimal modifications. The only thing that I did was take a little over an inch off the skirt length. I had contemplated taking up the bodice length some as well since I was worried about how plunging the neckline was, but decided that I didn’t have time to fiddle with it and left it ‘as is’. The neckline is low, but not revealing and frankly, it looks darn sexy. Overall, the fit is great and I felt fantastic wearing it – it’s a great wrap dress pattern! You can check out a more detailed review of my pattern here.
The fabric was also fantastic to work with – it’s comfortable to wear, has a great amount of stretch and was a dream to work with. If you’ve shied away from working with knits, I highly recommend you contacting Ann about what she’s got in stock – if they’re all like this particular fabric, you’ll never have a fear of stretch again (I also recomend Emma One Sock’s buttermilks, but beware since it’s polyester it won’t breathe like a cotton)!
I also have to send out a HUGE thank you to Bernadette – she not only found the mini calculators that I was looking for in this post, but sent me two of them! Thank you so much, they are PERFECT!
