Hey y’all! We expanded our tester group while we were working on our Fiona Sundress, and thought we’d share some of their makes with you. Whenever we release a pattern we always get lots of requests to see it made up on different figures, so this should give you a good idea of how it looks on a variety of sizes. Hopefully, you also get some ideas for fabric choices; we love how creative everyone was with their makes. Seeing a pattern interpreted in so many idiosyncratic ways is the best part of the process.
Just FYI, we made quite a few small changes to the pattern after we get everyone’s feedback, so you may spot a few fit issues we’ve since resolved (namely moving the bust apex a little lower and adjusting strap position). Still, I think these should give you a good sense of how this pattern fits. Enjoy!
