The John Kaldor fabric is soft with a slight sheen. It's easy to sew and lovely to wear.
The pattern is lined and you can also interline the pattern pieces for a more couture finish. I didn't test this pattern. I did my pattern changes and then made this dress using 10 at the top and 12 on the waist and hips. The tech notes are on my blog here.
While I was working on the skirt I have a kerfuffle moment with the centre front panel.
This was my sewing dilemma.
Then I kept wondering what I could do about it.
And then the back dots lined up in a way.
The pieces lined up beautifully and I stressed about the dots
And I stressed about the print. From the view of everyone non-sewers, they loved this dress.
The sewn in peplum feature is really pretty.
My hems are always lower at the centre back
So I wore this dress to dinner on the weekend and loved it. On a warm night, catching up with friends, this dress is a winner with our warm weather. I can't hold a grudge when this dress feels lovely and fits so well.
As they say, "if it fits, wear it! " Enjoy the festive season everyone.
