Je suis enchantée par ce patron , les options de tailles proposées permettent d’obtenir une robe ajustée à la perfection . J’ai eu beaucoup de compliment sur ma robe à un mariage dans un château en Bourgogne ce week-end !
Vraiment très contente de mon achat.
I liove this dress its very flatttering . Very easy to size for my figure which is non standard. Am making more of these now. Left out the zip as its a cotton with a small amount of stretch so i can pull it over my head.
I bought the Upton dress pattern and was really happy with the fit and the way the pattern was made. Definitely keen to purchase another, just a shame the one I want is out of stock! Thankyou!
