The Sewing Revival Fernbird Dress
My latest dress was made in partnership with Minerva. They donated this lovely Viscose Challis in exchange for a blog post. Before it even arrived I knew it was destined to become a Sewing Revival Fernbird Dress. I have been wanting to make this dress since last summer and I just knew this fabric would be perfect. It has enough weight to hang nicely but also retrains drape.
I made a size 10 and graded to a 12 at the hips. I could have just made a straight size 10 in hindsight but I rather like the extra room. It just means more room for dessert! I shortened the dress at the lengthen and shorten line by 3cm but also removed a further 3cm at the hem.
Will I make this dress again? Yes, definitely! I love how it turned out. The fabric is lovely to wear, it barely creases and the dress can be dressed up or down. I rather like the idea of wearing it with sneakers and a jean jacket but it would look equally good with heels as well.
