Love the fabric, loved sewing the pattern, can’t stand the way it fits me.
The pattern was fun to sew and has details that usually strike my fancy; the braided neckline, the sash tie, outside pockets and the elastic tailored cuffs. I was unsure if the style of the dress would look good on me when I bought the pattern and I should have listen to my gut. This dress is not flattering and even in taking the photos I just kept fussy with the way the front wrapped at the neckline. Now I wish I saved the fabric for another project. The dress will go to the back of the closet, maybe to be refashion down the line. On to the next Challenge!
