Review for Shelby Dress

A review of Shelby Dress and Romper

Reviewed by alwar36 on 7th April, 2021

I am definitely a ‘beginner’. The Shelby dress was only the second garment I have made using a pattern. I saw Liz make it on the GB Sewing Bee, loved it so decided to make it myself. It is labelled as an ‘intermediate’ but the instructions were extremely easy to follow and if I didn’t understand certain bits I turned to YouTube.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this dress. Having read a previous review I decided not to alter the length. I am 5ft 8in and the full length was exactly what I desired. I am so chuffed with how it turned out and I have received so many compliments. I think the 90s style silhouette is extremely flattering. As I have some fabric remaining I will make the shorter version of the dress for the summer!
