I think this pattern was the trickiest of the four, though I think a beginner could still tackle it. It’s only tricky because it offers quite a few variations based on your bust size and depending on what you pick you may have to alter the pattern.
It’s more intimidating than difficult.
When I saw this pattern I knew that I wanted to make it into a dress. I just extended the bodice pieces until I had the length that I wanted.
I was certain that I wanted this to be a full-length, floor sweeping dress, but when I tried it on before hemming it… well, it looked like a nightie. I chopped it off just below the knee and now it’s perfect.
I love sewing for myself! I can make clothes that actually fit my body. I can also find patterns and materials that are on trend without feeling like I am dressing the same as everyone else. I like a little originality. 🙂
Sewing for kids is fun and takes less material, but then I always run the risk that they’ll hate the finished project and never wear it.
