the last dress of the Summer…

A review of Hannah Dress and Top

Reviewed by seams_that_way on 2nd October, 2020

Fabric: embroidered chambray

Alterations: I raised the neckline a little, following the tutorial by @byhandlondon, and made some of my usual adjustments: narrow shoulders, small bust, lowering the bust darts. I also shortened the sleeves by 6 inches. I’m very happy with the fit.

I especially like the shape of the sleeves and the fact that the wrap bodice ties on the inside as well as on the outside.

The tiny rouleaux ties nearly drove me mad. On the inside I used plain white cotton tape. To me it was the only tricky bit in an overall straightforward pattern.
