It is sewn in a stretch fabric, so that is reason enough to love this dress. It is crazy comfortable, and for a faithful church-goer like me that has 3 hour Sunday meetings every week, comfort is important! ;)
I love the extra long tie around the waist that brings everything in and together.
The Bishop's Sleeve with the exaggerated gather into the cuff is one of my favorite features. I wasn't sure about it at first, but I think it ties the whole look together.
This is a Vogue Easy pattern, and it is not too complicated. The instructions are fairly straightforward and the illustrations are good.
The fabric I used is some stretchy, crepey, beautiful blush stuff I picked up at a Farmer's Market in Amsterdam. Technical, I know, but it was made for this pattern.
This pattern is an absolute winner in by book! Go make one, you won't regret it!
