I put in the second sleeve right into its place a few days ago finally completing the Dress Shirt. I was not sure how this dress will turn out in the end. I am used to sewing more closely fitted garments and I was not sure whether I could go with the loose style of this dress which has lots of ease. However, in the end I have to admit that I love this dress.The dress has many details that I like about it. I like the front bib, the pleat and also the gathering in the back. I think that these details complete the dress and give it style. The dress could be used daily but it could also be completed with some heels for a night-out. The fabric choice was also good. I did it out of linen which has some drape but not too much. The dress is very comfortable for summer weather and would also be wearable in autumn.
The instructions for the pattern were clear and easy to follow. I did the dress in a several stages because its details like putting in lining for the bib and the gathering in the back took a bit of time. Overall, I enjoyed the sewing process and was quite satisfied with the end result. Below you can see details from the lining of the front bib and the pleat from inside. I finished the seams of the bib with overlock afterwards.
