This turned out to be an extremely flattering dress! It’s the first thing I’ve sewed since I was a teenager (55 now). I probably should have started with something easier; I found myself occasionally confused by the directions, I’m now sewing a dress from an EASY Butterick pattern and it practically has no directions at all!
The dress fits me perfectly and gets a lot of compliments — it doesn’t look homemade at all. I played down the belt by not top stitching it because I wanted a plain shift, and I think that contributes to it’s flattering shape. Thanks Sis Boom!
A very big thank you. I have just completed the Rebecca shift dress. I am delighted with the results. After many years away from sewing, the instructions were wonderfully clear and the pattern fit together like a dream. Thanks again.
When I first saw that the pattern was 413 pages, I freaked out!! But then I saw that I only had to print about 20 pages for my size. *whew!* 🙂
The dress turned out really, really well. It is sure to become my go-to pattern for easy summer dresses. Thanks, ladies!!!!
