I love sewing but have big ADHD-related problems with written instructions. I decided to give this pattern a whirl because its "easy" rating and I have to say it delivered. I managed to finish the dress in two sessions and I'm super happy with the result: The steps and the illustrations are very very clear! I used a thin black gabardine with a bit of shine and it's gorgeous. The only thing is that the neckline and this colour makes it look a little like a hairdressing cape... next time I'll try a modification with a V-notch instead of the straight boatneck. It fits perfectly and looks really elegant.
I read the instruction twice, before cutting the fabric for my first box pleat dress. Lessons learned: don't get fabric that's too thick (pleat at the back of neckline gets very thick), get a good tutorial for setting in sleeves. I watched the tutorial from Instagram @seamstoanend, simple and works for my second dress (pink pattern), as the sleeve is without "wrinkles". Body size is very generous but I worry about adjusting as I'm not that experienced. I think i may need to size down the body but not the armhole/sleeve. Maybe when I graduate to "experienced" class.
I loved this pattern and will make it again, my only complaint is that the neck is a bit high, would be perfect if it was a bit lower down. The dress is easy to make, instructions are fairly clear and I have received many compliments - will definitely make again. Also, in picking fabric, I picked quite a loose weave linen, when making the mitred hem, it has the potential to fray, would have been better in a firmer linen.
