I'm still undecided how I feel about this dress. I love the fabric but I'm wondering if dinning room curtains would have been better after all. The dress was easy enough to make. There is a great review on Sew Mama Sew that was helpful. I had the same problem as the reviewer - tight under the arms.
I made the XS and chose that size based on the finished garment measurements. I didn't want to have a muu muu on my hands. Again, I should have listened to my gut and made the size S to accommodate the girls. It's a little snug across the chest and makes the V in the front pull a little. I also added 3 inches to the length as well. I figured I'm not 18 any more - I know - shocker - and any covering of those unsightly veins would be appreciated by all. The directions required you to hand stitch the V in place but since I do anything possible to avoid hand stitching I zig zag stitched the edge to prevent fraying and edge stitched the top of the V (make sense?).
Despite my luke warm feelings about this dress I did wear it in public - to a party actually. I'm sure this dress will see more social action over the summer; it is quite comfy.
So tell me, what have you May(d) for You! lately?
