This dress got finished just in time for me to throw it on, get photos, and head to the vineyard with some friends!

The pattern was very easy and quick. I used a 100% rayon fabric. This dress is so comfortable and airy. Love!

I made size 6, and it fits perfectly. The only change to the pattern that I made was to finish the bodice/skirt seam (in white thread) before sewing at 5/8" and then 3/8" away to form the elastic casing (in blue thread). Another minor change was to narrowly hem it at 5/8" instead of the 1 1/4" that they allowed (I'm 5'9" tall).

Perfect for summer! My sister, upon seeing this photo, has deemed this The Modern English Regency Dress ;)

Hope you enjoyed this review! Have a great day, fellow stitchers!

Edit: Here's the pattern link in case you'd like to make one for yourself. Highly recommend!

Fabric isnt my thing, I convince dead trees to become furniture myself, but it's satisfying as fuck making something with your own two hands.

Great work.

Is three hours considered a lot or a little? My impression is that it would be a little, in which case that's impressive speedy work.

Hahah thanks! Three hours is pretty speedy for a dress from start (cutting out fabric) to finish (hemming). I think it's my new record!

This looks like a "walking barefoot on the beach" dress to me.
