This is the fourth Adeline that I have sewn – but I daresay that it will not be the last! I’ve sewn two for me (one now resides in my cousin’s wardrobe) and one for my Mum. Mum definitely wants another one too!
Because I’ve sewn this dress so many times it was actually very quick to sew it again. I used the shortened pattern that I used last time, in size 12. No other alterations.
I really do love this pattern. It’s such an easy style to wear! The V neckline is terrific – I stitch the facing down to provide a nice topstitching detail. Not that you can really see the topstitching on this fabric!
From the Style Arc website: Great designer style dress which is easy to sew and wear. The slight cocoon shape and its roll up sleeve makes give this style a casual but trendy look. FABRIC SUGGESTION Linen, Silk, Crepe.
Isn’t that fabric superb? It’s African wax cotton that my sister-in-law Jeanette brought back from Dusseldorf when she visited Europe earlier in the year. She’s great at giving me fabric souvenirs from her travels! And she actually brought back enough of the fabric for both of us to make and Adeline – hers is in progress as I type! Matchy-matchy sister-in-law! It makes me giggle every time I think of it. And yes – we will get photos.
Once again I have nothing but praise for this pattern. It’s terrific.
