Material - Muted Check (silk/poly) purchased from Tessuti Melbourne
I really enjoyed making this dress and was happy with the pattern and result. Originally was going to make a full skirt but thought it would be nice to have a dress for the occasion.

I found the pattern was easy to make - no dramas really. I even didn't have to look at the instructions. Tip - found it best to label some pieces with 1/4" quilting tape. I've never had to do this before but the sleeves have a back and front part (seam on top of shoulder) so best to mark these first. Actually, I really like this type of construction - it sits well.

Would I make this pattern again - yes indeed.
Would I use this material - sure will!! I am thinking of going back to my original thought of making a skirt, as it will go very nicely my Black Enigma top.
