It is increasingly rare that I crush on a pattern at its release. After 6 years of sewing, I’v got a lot of patterns. Now I know better my morphology, lines that will suit me and my style that will stick to my personality. And thanks to my drafting lessons, I have the opportunity to sew the dresses of my dreams. So I have less and less loves at first sight when new patterns release.
Well, except with Sew Over It. ❤
Since spring, I dream of lightweight fabrics. When I read that this dress was recommended for such fabrics, I did not think more than 15 seconds and ordered the paper version. Exit the to-do list and well scaled projects: like last year, Doris made a strike in my schedule.
And yes, this dress has taught me to always look at the finished garment measurements when they are indicated. And clearly here, it was reported that Doris is more fitted than the Vintage Shirt Dress. So I still fit it, but I’m not enjoying the ease at the waist offered by Doris when we chose the right size.
Conclusion : I think we need to find a name for the syndrome of “Oh my God I love this dress this is my new favorite dress of all time,” I feel after every project. : D This, you think, is no exception to the rule, and there will obviously be other versions. But in size 10 and with longer skirts! : D
