What was good about making this?
The dress came together surprisingly quickly, which I think was because unlike the sweetie and elephant dresses it was only lined on the bodice, not the skirt too. I also felt pretty impressed that I managed to make pleats and fit an invisible zip.
What was bad about making this?
I didn’t make a toile (again….) and found that the bodice needed quite a bit of adjustment once it was on. I promise that I’ve now learnt my lesson
Would you make it again?
I wear it all the time, so definitely yes, but I’ll make the aforementioned toile first!
