A great way to master my basic adjustments

A review of Bettine Dress


Reviewed by aitchey on 18th January, 2020

A nice throw-it-on-and go basic with a simple shape, no fastenings to worry about and straightforward construction. What makes it stand apart from a basic shift are the fab, enormous pockets, which are really beautifully designed and very clearly explained in the instructions.

I made a size 7 based on the finished garment measurements and added a half inch FBA, and an inch sway back adjustment – which has worked really well.

It’s a really quick make, easy to put together in an afternoon. More on my construction process on the blog: https://aitcheysews.wordpress.com/2019/08/27/mastering-my-basic-adjustments-with-bettine/
