Notes Fabric is Lotte Jansdotta Lime green and white

The pattern was not too difficult to make after I figured out how to go about sewing the neck and front placket. Stay stitching the corners solved most of my problems. Turning in the ends of the neck binding was a bit of nightmare at first but result was very good (I think).

If I make this pattern again I think I would include a centre back seam so that I could better fit my sway back. However it seems to fit very well anyway and is very comfortable to wear.

I left off the patch pockets and used welt pockets instead as I need lots of practice. I also left off the shoulder tabs because I thought the fabric was busy and the dress didn't need them.

Lekala patterns seem to be quite fitted and I add a couple of extra centimetres to my measurements for a bit more ease. I am happier with more room

    Very nice dress.

  • Maria

    A lovely dress, I agree with you that a bit more ease can be needed - and this looks a great fit. Your fabric is beautiful, a great colour and the scale of the spot pattern is just right.

  • Nicole Keller

    You look fresh and elegant. Great idea to do welt pockets (Don't we all need practice with welt pockets)
