Have a good look for yourselves, and please feel free to give some very honest feedback so I can improve.
Over all it does fit very well, having taken care and a few alterations to the pattern, i.e. my waist that is wider than my hips!
Either I need slight alteration or a little more care to aline the darts top and bottom.
Back darts line up nicely.
I think there is too much fabric at the sides of the skirt. I will not being doing the pleats and haven't decided how short to make the skirt yet. Probably knee length ( am over 35 now!!)
So now to make a little change here and there and then to raid the fabric stash. As I'm not that into the dress I will not be going out to buy new fabric, but should it suddenly improve I might have another go.
What do you think? And how are getting on with the sew along marathon?
