When I first started sewing again I started by using patterns and fabrics that I felt were easy. I think working with wovens, calico type fabrics, is easy. They don’t stretch, and they don’t slip while sewing.
I made this pattern and although the construction went well I’m fairly certain I’ll never wear the dress. It isn’t flattering, I’m not impressed with my fabric selection and it’s not comfortable. That’s basically the trifecta of not going to happen.
The pattern itself was easy to follow and I had no issues with it. It’s just not my cup of tea.
What do you think? What patterns have you tried that didn’t quite meet your vision?
