Q&A with Pohutukawa

zinc6 asked:
love your fabric choice
Pohutukawa answered:
Thanks!
s amlani asked:
Beautiful as usual! I have registered for the couture dress class, but could not use the pattern she uses as my waistline eludes me. This pattern would work for me if it's not real fitted. Your fabric choice is wonderful!
Pohutukawa answered:
Hi, I don't have a waist, straight up and down and bumpy in the middle. I was so surprised by this fit, maybe it is the empire line. You should give it a try!
karenlgil1007098 asked:
I am using the same pattern. Did you line it? Great job on a beautiful dress.
Pohutukawa answered:
It's a neat pattern, no I didn't line it. Thanks.
Pat Mitchell asked:
Yowzzr what a great dress!
Pohutukawa answered:
It is so neat, I'm not really a dress wearer, but the sizing in the bust makes it fit!! Yeah hah
