A review of Zadie Dress

The Zadie dress is probably the most ambitious project I’ve made so far due to the precision needed to match the pieces and get those lovely angles. I used some lightweight jersey in floral for skirt and bodice with black for the side panels and arms. It’s a slightly shiny jersey fabric which looks almost like sportswear close up but makes for a supremely comfortable dress! I took my time over this and did it in two days, mainly because the fabric was a nightmare to unpick and I had to cut a side panel out again so I wanted to be careful. I really like this dress a lot though – you can go casual with ballet pumps or dress it up a bit more with a little cardi. Plus it was my first make with pockets so I have a real soft spot for it! I can see me sewing up another one nearer the winter in a ponte fabric.
