I *LIKED* my muslin - but I *LOVE* this dress in the red eyelet so much!
The dress (Advance, 6922) came together a lot easier this time. I think I got a much better fit on the bodice, and I definitely got a better fit in the back.
(Better fitting back. I especially like the way the zipper ends right at the V. It didn't, in my muslin.)
This dress reminds me of stuff you find in the J. Crew catalog or something. And I think, despite being a vintage pattern, this dress doesn't feel a tiny little bit costumey. It just feels like a nice, pretty, summer dress.
The eyelet holes made me wonder if I wanted to line this dress, but I held off, and I'm glad. Right now, it feels light and airy, and lining might have killed that feeling.
