I did it!
Having said last week that I was going to sew a dress before I went to my mum's I regretted saying I would! Thinking that I would not have time.
However, the pattern and fabric came at the start of the week and Wednesday and Thursday saw me running it up.
I saw the Esma dress on the Sew Over It vlog and loved it - so immediately bought the print at copyshop version. (I don't like printing at home and sticking together so was very happy to see this option!)
I got the fabric from Minerva and is a viscose jersey.
Loved sewing this - there are a few things I will change for next time - and there will be a next time!
The fabric wasn't the easiest to handle and was a bit thinner than I expected (but I am a newbie - so others would probably have realised this). It was nice to sew, but was a bit fiddly to pin. The waistband is obviously not pattern matched and is upside down! But I don't think many will notice - next time I may make it in a plain jersey.
I cut the size 24 as that fitted my largest measurement, but this turned out to be a little big - next time I will cut the 22 and consider reducing the cut on the waistband. But all of this aside - I love it!
The pic is on Patricia - I will get a modelled shot in the week as I intend to take it away with me.
