Fiona Sundress Tester Round-up

Fiona Sundress Pattern // Closet Case Patterns

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!
