I wore my Curtain Dress as I call it out for the very first time today! Here are some photos - please excuse the creases - I had been sat in a cafe eating lunch...I knew I should have taken the photos before leaving when the dress was ironed!
Also in the first two photos, I forgot that the bright yellow bucket was spoiling the photo right behind me...
It was really comfy to wear and apart from the fabric getting very creasy, I loved the look - not too baggy and not too clingy. I did decide to take the hem up a bit so I didn't cheat in the end Katie! I had cut the pattern out to length B but it didn't look quite right below my knee but by taking it up about 1 or 2 inches, it's just above my knee which looks much better with boots.
Overall, I thought the pattern (Simplicity 1878, the Diplomat dress) was a great little sew for a beginner like me. I did have to take it in quite a lot, even though I cut it according to my measurements but I'd much rather do that than realise I'd cut all the pieces too small. It's all experience for me. I would definitely sew it again, maybe in a lightweight cotton for summer.
By the way, those tights might not look like much in the photos but they are fleece-lined - brilliantly warm and cosy for the winter! (Another bargain from Primark)
