Darling Ranges Dress22:43
I have been meaning to make a Darling Ranges dress for a year, since I made this muslin,which was massive. I do love Megan Nielsen patterns, did anyone see her brilliant April Fool's this year? It was brilliant!
I cut the L for the muslin so this time I made a straight M and it is practically perfect, maybe a teeny bit tight over the bust.
|this face is much better than the one I was pulling|
I had to drop the but darts by about 3 inches (I am not sure, even pre kids, that my bust has ever been as high as the darts are on this pattern... ) and I shortened it as I ran out of fabric. I used a cross weave organic cotton that I got in a bundle from here.
My right bust dart appears to be a bit pointy.... I will need to deal with that.
I have plans on a summer version to use up some of my enormous cotton stash that really needs attention but for now it's back to a couple of pairs of trousers that are WIP's.
