great result for beginning garment sewer

Made this dress for a friend. Lots of sewing experience (mostly quilting) but not a lot of garment sewing. I was really nervous to start because the finishes on the example garment looked very nice. and POCKETS. but the whole thing was relatively painless and the end product was beautiful. MY friend wore the dress to work today and it was so nice to see her enjoy it. Sizing was a bit large BUT that may be due to me not being experienced or being anxious it would not fit. it's also meant to be a bit oversized, i believe. we did take up the bodice a few inches.

Made a size 12/14 using old bedsheets and it fits well on me. I love the minimal design. Thank you for sharing the free pattern and instructions

I shortened the bodice a bit. It's beautiful and simple and so comfortable on hot days

This is my take on this dress. I used a thrifted curtain. Love the simplicity and elegance of it.
