Veronica by Seamwork made in lovely red and white seersucker. A perfect picnic dress! Although the construction is veeery simple, I struggled with the fit (as always with the Seamwork patterns, I’m afraid). The front piece fitted fine, but I had to take 15cm(!) out of the center back. And it’s still rather puffy. I skipped the zipper – it wouldn’t sit flat with all the extra fabric at the back, and I can get in an out of the dress without it. I made the neckline slightly bigger and finished it with self-made bias tape.
Overall I’m really pleased with it and I wore it a lot this Summer. It’s comfy and easy to wear and I don’t see the back, so it doesn’t bother me that much. I don’t think I’ll be making it again though, too many fit issues for such a simple pattern.
