When I saw this pattern whilst scrolling on Etsy I just couldn’t resist it. It had such a lovely vintage look and I thought it could look wonderful for summer!
p r i c e
£20/4m Viscose Challis Deadstock Fabric
£1.50 White Invisible Zipper
Total: £21.50 + £11
I had such high expectations of this pattern and the first thing I must say is that I don’t really understand their sizing. I went with my usual measurements but it ended up being way too big. At the same time I’m scared to size down in case I do too much so next time around I’ll probably just steal even more in the side seams and shoulders. I swapped out the sleeves and decided to use the shorter options from the Lliria Dress from Pauline Alice instead.
Overall I’m happy with the result and I really love this beautiful fabric. Will definitely be worn a lot this summer.
