This pattern is super easy and comes together pretty quickly. It's a great pattern for beginners. My only qualm is that I wish the tie was a little longer. Well also I don't like that it doesn't explain how make a thread carrier. Maybe this is something basic that most people know, but I don't so I omitted it. I'll have to look on youtube or something to see how it's done and possibly add it later.
I decided to try doing a French seam for the first time and it wasn't as bad as I thought...in fact it was pretty easy.
I was really excited about this dress and really wanted it to fit (the past couple garments I made for myself have been a bit too small) so I made it a size bigger than I originally planned. That was a mistake...it's too big now. I don't think it looks that obvious that it's too big so I can still wear it.
I'm thinking a cute cropped cardigan in a fun color - like green - would hide the ill fit and also just look nice with the dress. Anyway, I guess it's back to my aprons, but this was a fun break.
