I check PatternReview.com before buying patterns.
My attention was engaged by Butterick 5848, but nobody had posted any reviews. I thought, it's not popular? But I bought it on out of print sale.
The dress really looks good on the model. But I thought the length of the dress is too short for me. I can't hold on to straps of trains in a such mini-dress, dangerous!
This is view D. I've made a view A and D, I lengthened the skirt to knee length. The yokes are combined with a view B. The fabric is a soft tencel jersey that I bought it Japanese online.
I love the unique long- sleeves, but I got confused because my fabric looked the same on both sides. If I sew it again, I would have to number each pieces well, as some parts look very similar.
The dress has a lovely drape. I'm looking forward to going out in it.
I like the style, I wore my new dress that I am quite proud of.
Here is a cover-up tunic version,view A.
I used a lightweight polyester. I love the this top with slouchy high-low hem and unique sleeves.
Can you see a lot of the hearts? I love the printed fabric I feel it so airy and comfortable to wear for hot summer.
