So, that was the first time I was sewing something. Fortunately I had a great help from my mum :-) pattern was easy to work with. Based on other reviews I though sizing would be a bit smaller, so I decided to go for size M (till the last moment I wanted to go for size S, but then I got soft). Top part is ok, bottom part a bit looser but I like that, just the waist line is sooooo huge (my body measurements are 89-61-92 in cm). So we added four buttons to the back and now the dress can grow with me (to both direction...). Overall I am pleased with the result.
Such a beautiful dress and easy pattern to follow! Love it so much!
Perfect and the seller was so helpful!
