I had such high hopes for this pattern. It looked so simple to make (and it was) and cute and trendy - nahhh... not on me anyway!
I purchased the most beautiful soft rayon jersey from Gorgeous Fabrics. The fabric is rreversible to make the look similar to the photo on the pattern cover. However, I am not sure if it is the fabric but it is very soft and perhaps too soft for this ensemble. The colour is also not really working for me.
Here is the dress on it's own. The only alteration I made to the pattern was to take the side seams in a bit.
And now with the jacket...
Any ideas anyone???
Do I need to change the jacket somehow?
Can I style it to brighten it up a bit more?
Or should it just be relegated to the back of the wardrobe, not to be seen for a long time?
