I haven't seen anyone on Pattern Review review this dress but there are a few on the Burdastyle website - 03/2012 #120.
I decided this might work for me as I have a straight cut singlet dress and I wear it a lot (mainly at home) - V8138, so I thought a more fashionable version may be the ticket for for this summer.
Mostly when I look at versions of this dress, it has been made in a plain jersey. I have used a mesh print and lined it. I am not 100% convinced that it works in a print and I have a hankering to make it in a plain navy. I think that would be a great backdrop for some chunky necklaces and *perhaps* look slimming as well.
Well this is the finished frock on Diana.
My reluctance to model this is that it really highlights the legs and I am wondering if at my age I should have cut the 'hi' part a little lower. I may do this for my next version in a plain navy. I wasn't sure I liked the hi-lo hemline when it first appeared but like most things, it has grown on me the longer it is around. Maybe I should have stayed with my first impression??
Anyway that is the sneak peek for now, you may see a modelled shot yet. Any thoughts on using the print or the hi-lo thing?? Ciao for now!
