Wonderful looking loose fitting dress

A review of Homer + Howells Cissy Dress

Reviewed by Sheila O'Kelly on 2nd September, 2020

I’m really delighted with this dress. I find it very difficult to find a woven dress with a bodice that suits me. But I think this one hits the mark. The navy is a brushed viscose and the orange is a cotton needlecord.

As usual with my narrow shoulders I did have to grade out from size 16 there to 24 and back to size 20 at the waist. I also needed to do a cheat’s biceps adjustment – I used the size 24 sleeve and adjusted under the arm accordingly.

Despite all these changes, I think it’s a great pattern and I will be making it many more times.
