I loved the look of this dress. It was inspired from the movie “La La Land” with Emma Stones’s gorgeous yellow dress. I had never previously followed a Sewaholic pattern and did some research before purchasing. There were lots of positive reviews and a step by step guide on the Sewaholic website which is a great thing to have if you are a bit unsure during the making up stages. http://sewaholic.net/
The pattern and instructions were easy to follow. I did a mock up first as I am fairly large chested and always generally have to alter bodice measurements to suit my frame. I am usually a size 8-10 so plumped for the size 10 to be on the safe side.
The dress is fully lined and actually the finished result looks more difficult than it really was! Although I think that next time I may not line the skirt and only line the bodice. The only alteration I had to make was ironically to take in the bodice slightly to achieve a more fitted effect! I think next time I might even downsize and opt for a size 8!
The only problem I have now is deciding on which material and pattern fabric to purchase for my next Cambie dress!
Thank you Sewaholic. I will definitely be making more of your creations in the near future!
