Hey Peeps! So I’m really not sure about the dress! I like it more now I’ve seen it on camera. Maybe it’s the lack of print that is throwing me off. I’m not willing to give up on it yet, I think I just need to find the right fabric for it. The M8145 I am very pleasantly surprised with. I’m so glad I went with the size 6/8 blend, this pattern might be another great candidate for a comparison video (although I don’t want to keep making garments I know aren’t going to fit me 🤣). I decided to try it on with my jogging bottoms that I said I don’t like and actually together they look awesome…..I’m really pleased.
