When I saw this darling pattern, I pictured a very glam selfie in lovely floral print. The end result isn't so much a glam selfie, but it is still a lovely floral print.
I cut version B. The instructions were pretty easy to follow and it didn't take long to stich the pieces together. However, once I tried on the dress I did not like the way the yoke looked on me. I forgot to take a photo of the original pattern piece, but the point hit me right at my widest part of my stomach pooch and it was not flattering. So I got rid of the point.
And still wasn't happy. I couldn't decide if it was this pattern in this print, or that the fabric was too thin. I just knew I didn't like it.
So I took out the yoke and recut the skirt. And I voile! It looks about a million times better!
I opted for a lapped zip instead of a invisible zipper. I love the way lapped zippers look and I also need to practice the side laps. You can see where it's not the straightest lap and also where I took some stitches out...shhh, don't tell.
I added lavender bias tape on the hem, neck facing and sleeves, just to add a little more prettiness.
