Hey Peeps! I am so in love with this dress! I will definitely be making more. I like that it can be styled for the weather we’re having now and then in summer it won’t be too hot! If you have any questions about the sew-along please let me know in the comment. I’ve had a few questions about why I trace and the fit. I trace my patterns because the originals are expensive and in the past I have cut out the tissue and then I only have that size available to me, if I trace then I will always have the original to come back to if I want to make a different size in future. Altering the tissue paper is always a nightmare too, if I trace on to a sturdier paper then I’m not so worried about damaging the pattern pieces. Also if I make a mistake in the alterations I still have the original to come back to. With regards to fit I am 5ft8″, I have a long torso which is why I add the length. I have a 38″ bust, 27″ waist, and 43″ hips (at the moment). I wear a 32G cup bra. The sizing that the pattern companies use has nothing to do with your “high street” size. This does make buying patterns a little more tricky especially if you fall between the bundle sizes but you’ll get to know which sizes you want after you’ve made a few different patterns up.
