I really love this pattern. Princess seamed dresses may be harder to fit (be careful about your curve when doing a FBA) but once your muslin is done, they sew up very quickly. This dress went from cutting to done except for hemming in 2 days. I put off hemming for a few days because the skirt is HUGE! I was considering entering this for the patternreview.com’s vintage pattern challenge, but competion is fierce over there and this one won’t do. It’s cute and I love it, but over there, they like sleek, modern, “wearable”. I have another pattern in mind that will be just the thing. I have less than a week to do it, so I need to sew like mad!
