Olivia Dress - Style Arc

The pattern is very well drafted and went together with no problems at all. I graded across three sizes between the bust and hips very easily due to the simple shape of the pattern pieces.
I decided to self draft an all in one neck line and sleeve facing which worked well (would have been better if I'd listened to the nagging voice telling me not to interface the whole facing...). I'll use this for the next version with only the neckline area interfaced.
I didn't even look at the pattern instructions for this dress as it only has three main pattern pieces. I used a soft viscose challis from The Textile Centre. It wanted to slide around a fair bit but extra pins helped keep it in place.
I'm pleased with the style of the dress and I'll be making more.
