Sometimes, you just need some colourful fabric to try and cheer yourself up.
I picked up the last bit of this 100% canvas fabric from the home décor section of the fabric store for the only reason that I was smitten of the print and colours. Too bad I didn't test out the pattern before I cut out this project. I certainly could have gone down about two sizes!
This is the Box Pleat Dress by The Assembly Line and considering that it is the third pattern that I have tried from their line I should have known better. Sizing aside (I made this one in a size large), this pattern is lovely. No complaints. Only praise!
Next version, besides cutting out the correct size, I would like to narrow the width of the sleeves. Maybe something like the sleeves from the Tulip Dress pattern. And I'll keep in mind that raising the height of the pockets was a good idea.
