Q&A with Kiwi_Jenn

PerlenDiva asked:
Wow, this dress fits you like a glove. Well done!
Kiwi_Jenn answered:
Thank you!
Davesmom asked:
stylish zipper area!! The fit is wonderful, you should enjoy wearing this dress. I like the grey color as well. Nice job!
Kiwi_Jenn answered:
Thanks! I wanted a little bling on an otherwise pretty plain dress.
So Sew Easy asked:
I really should try this course, but I'm still a newbie and rather intimidated by the exactness required. Your fit looks awesome.
Kiwi_Jenn answered:
Thanks! None of the techniques she uses are difficult, the videos are great at walking through the steps. The dress is a pretty simple pattern. It did take me a long time to make though, the hand sewing is slow-going.
So Sew Easy asked:
I so love your dress that I am going to enrol in the course too - but I am not sure which pattern to get - I could be between the smaller and the larger pattern. Does the pattern run big or small - should I get the larger or smaller?
Kiwi_Jenn answered:
If you're going by the measurements on the envelope I almost always size down, my measurements would indicate 16-18 and I made a 14, letting it out a bit on the skirt, and taking it in a bit at the shoulders. The finished garment waist measurement on this pattern is 31" (from the pattern tissue)
