I first saw this dress on One Pretty thing. I book marked it and new I wanted to give it a try. Then a few weeks later someone else posted about it and I bookmarked it, not knowing it was the same dress until I went into the details. So I figured I should give it a try since I liked it so much.
I was a little intimidated by all the details. All in all it came out ok. If I were to make it again I know the things I would change. I would not make it taper in...it barely fits over my bum. I did a 16 due to my bust size, which made the skirt portion supper big. In this picture I even took the sides in after it was together. It kinda made me look pregnant.
These are changes I don't think i could have made until I tried to make the dress already. I wish the pattern pieces had information on top, bottom, and attach here. I had to take the bust pieces apart because I had them sewn wrong (I'm sure my fault, I have a hard time reading patterns).
