      Tal cuff dress

      The pattern was straightforward to follow and a relatively easy sew. I could do with some tips on closing over the space left for inserting the elastic as I have always had trouble doing this when using wider elastic. Made the small size after reading other reviews, my measurements were marginally into the medium range, so glad I did as the fit is really good. Looking forward to making my next version when I find the right fabric.

      • Any tips or advice to other makers? Another sewer recommended marking one side of the elastic so you could tell if it became twisted. Using this gave me more confidence that I was finishing the right ends- no Möbius strips!

      A summer dress just in time for the cold weather!

      I really enjoyed making up this pattern. Clean lines for cutting out the relevant size, and very clear instructions which were especially useful for me as I was dusting off my sewing machine after a good number of years... I did struggle with the facing but the penny dropped eventually and it turned out very tidily. All together, it was about two evenings of sewing, plus a Sunday afternoon assembling the pattern and curtain the pieces. I am delighted with the final result. I love how the cut works with this structured cotton, and although it's a little bit big - I made a small - airiness is no bad thing for a summer dress! I'll size down for my next cuff dress - but there will definitely be another!
