I haven't used a lot of circle skirt patterns in recent years but they definitely seem to be making a comeback in more current patterns. The only issue is the amount of material you need. I also didn't let the dress sit for a couple of days before hemming. This is something you should do with a circle skirt as the material, for some reason, can tend to drop in some places so the skirt can look uneven. I didn't do this, which is a surprise because I am quite prone to leaving things hanging on bedroom doors for days or weeks on end before I get around the finishing touches. Anyways the skirt has dropped a little at the back but I'm pretty confident you can't see it when I'm wearing it. Well that's what I'm telling myself anyways. A pretty straightforward pattern to make up. Would definitely like to make this dress again maybe in a sleeveless version.
Oh how I love the square neck line. The only issue with the bodice for me is the usual issue of a little bit too full in the bust department. Hard to gauge this when you are making up a pattern I guess all I can do for future is to make the centre piece a less wide.
So many nice variations of this pattern. Would like to get around to trying a sleeveless version or the little ruffle sleeve looks cute too.
