And got me back to my sewing machine. I am not in love with this dress, but it is comfortable. Most/All of the dresses I have sewn thus far have a waistband. Not just any waistband, but a 1940's or 1950's waistband. When I begin sewing the garment, I always think in my head that I will look like the drawing on the front of the pattern. which always (at least it seems to me) have an exaggerated "SMALL" waist.
I have seen some really cute dresses made with this pattern. I hope they don't get my hopes up about what mine will look like.
