I finally made this pattern with the recommended fabric.
Rayon that's been in my stash with this fantastic print. I got it at Tessuti Fabrics when I was buying something else. The colour scheme isn't my usual and I thought it would be nice for a change.
I shortened the dress a few inches, I shortened the sleeves to below the raglan attachment, enough that I thought it wouldn't gape when I raised my arms.
I always sew down the facings but you know, I never thought about how I could make it a skinnier facing and sew it down closer to the edge. I thought about that too late and didn't do it.
Pockets harvested from something else on my floor.
It's really such an easy sew, there's not much to say.
I wore it that night to dinner. I am finally happy with this pattern. A fabric with no body is best suited to this very wide dress. I see there's a new jersey option, which would be interesting. It's so wide that I feel like you would need to narrow it to make a nice jersey dress though. All the online pictures don't make it look as wide as I felt in my previous iterations!
