Is there a back view?
Hi! Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of how the dress looks from the back. I do have a flat sketch of the back view and am attaching it on this page under finished garment photos. I hope this helps. Have a great day!
I am bouncing off Catherine's review - What does the back neckline look like? The pictures are all of the front view. Is the back a V-neck? High neck? An explanation would be helpful since the photos are of the front only. Thank you!
Hello, The back is a standard rounded neckline sitting at the base of the neck. There are illustrations inside the free download to help you visualise this :)
I'm just browsing the patterns and this one says it's reversible. But none of the pictures show what that means. The buttons are always on the front. I think an explanation would help everyone. Thanks!
Yes, this is reversible in the sense that you can wear the buttons to the front, or down the back. It offers two looks and two different neckline options!
I made this as a Large in a cream color but I am slim-framed (narrow, boney shoulders and neck) with a wide chest and hip measurement. It was a little baggy and my bra was showing so I put a white linen tank under it and accessorized it with a long braided silk scarf and got a nice look going without having to make any alterations. 2 comments: 1. Make the top buttonhole with you machine BEFORE you put the bias tape on the neck because mine would not fit through my machine, it was too bulky and I had to take it apart and then the top got a little messy. Set me back an hour. 2. Also, I was confused by the bias tape pattern for the neck. It said cut 2 on the bias fold as a diagonal and I thought that was a lot and it would waste a lot of surrounding fabric so I just made tape using her other method blog.fabrics-store.com/2016/11/04/sewing-glossary-how-to-make-your-own-bias-tape-tutorial/ and cut it the the length I needed. Arm holes were fine.
