Dream 90’s dress!

A review of Friday Pattern Company Hughes Dress

Reviewed by Modista Sewing on 1st June, 2022

The Hughes Dress is a 90’s silhouette and a great pattern to start with if you’d like to try out princess seams, as with the back waist ties fitting is not too much of a challenge.

I found the sizing relatively small on this and ended up making a L graded to XL so if you like a looser fit, size up. I also did a narrow shoulder and sloping shoulder adjustment.

The Hughes has a lot of pieces so you need to be organised when prepping these and the interfacing etc. However if you commit some time to this the dress then comes together really nicely. This is my favourite version, in a viscose and shortened by 15 cm, however you could also use cottons, linens and crepe too. Overall I happily recommend this dress!
