And the tester photos didn't disappoint - in fact I think they were the most awesome tester photos I've ever seen.
So I had to buy the pattern as soon as it was released and make one up the next night.
I am utterly in love with this pattern, not only is the end result completely stunning but the construction is really clever too.
The back bodice is attached by a method called 'tubing' which is also one of the methods used on the Elegance & Elephants Bohemian Babydoll Dress.
The waist isn't enclosed, which I know many handmaidens prefer, Personally, I'm not really fussed on enclosing things - even when there is the option to do so, I very rarely actually do it - that's just a personal preference - I sew kids clothing, not haute couture. It's totally a personal preference though.
I wouldn't call it a beginner sew because the instructions in the pattern are not really aimed at beginners. However, there is a Sewing Circle on Facebook with a video tutorial for every step!! So, I believe even a beginner could totally rock this pattern.
As usual, my model wasn't really interested in taking photos but told me I could have 5 photos in return for 2 red snakes 😝
Try it for yourself!! You know you want to
