I'm loving this dress for two reasons:
- it cinches the waist very nicely although it can get a little clautrophobic, not the patterns fault, sit-ups are in order.
There wasn't very many pattern pieces to deal with, which was great! After having "my" Brother XR-65 for a couple of years, figured out the blind hem stitch for the dress hem, so proud!
The fabric is a linen-type fabric with some stretch. I prewashed and hung out to dry which might have been a mistake as it got pretty crispy with wrinkles that don't easily iron out.
I'd say pretty successful. I'm happy with it and plan on sewing a couple more for the summer. Cynthia Rowley has some pretty nice patterns out right now, just purchased two more, one of which i started last night!
