This dress was my first venture into the world of sewing with stretch fabric. I was very nervous and did mammoth amounts of reading articles on websites before taking the plunge.
I chose this pattern after seeing Laura's Petite Passions review. I thought she looked so lovely in it! I read a lot of other reviews of the pattern and everyone seemed to say it was a straightforward sew. Some people commented that the waistline came up a bit high on them, but as I am pretty short anyway I figured it would be fine for me. Also, Laura mentioned that she didn't make any adjustments either and I figured we're probably similar height.
It then took me a long time to choose the fabric. I eventually decided on this lovely viscose jersey from Splendid Stitch. I initially sent an enquiry, explaining that I was planning to make the Wren and checking whether they thought this would be a suitable fabric. The staff there were very helpful and confirmed that the fabric had the required amount of stretch. The fabric is truly gorgeous, so soft and comfortable to wear and the design is so eye-catching without being over-the-top.
I absolutely love this dress. I have worn it to barbecue parties, work, shopping, everywhere. I always get lots of compliments when I wear this. To be honest, it makes me feel like I am wearing sunshine! And it is just soooo comfortable.
If you haven't made it yet then I totally recommend this x
