I always love working with quality cottons. Cotton is a dream to sew, easy to unravel mistakes with, easy to wash and wear, and lastly easy to fit on the body when sewing. Not as easy as a jersey, but certainly beats a silk chiffon. The pattern required only fabric, buttons and thread and had really simple instructions. I added a bit of length to the dress and in hindsight should have added more as it is still rather short! My favourite part of the dress is the pockets, I love how they fit into the seams down the front sides of the dress. I also like the use of coordinating fabrics with different patterns; the joy of buying cottons from a range. It was a bit finicky getting the loops right for the buttons, and I think in the end they are a little on the big side for the size of the buttons. I should have also made an adjustment to the hips area and added a few cms in the width as I think it’s a little tight. I recommend being careful with checking the pattern sizing against your hips measurement and being generous. It would have worked better slightly more flared.
