I am a sucker for anything with buttons down the back. It think it is such a beautiful, interesting detail. I loved that the Trevi Dress page has a sample in this same fabric in a different colorway, so I knew that it was a good canvas for this gorgeous print. I love how it came out grading 3 sizes from the bust to the hip. I think it skims my shape beautifully and I feel great in this dress. One of the things I liked about this pattern is that it came with a version with the FBA built in. I used that one and while I know the fit would be better if I had done my own, I’m pretty pleased with it.

I enjoyed the construction of the dress. It’s straightforward with the button plackets part of the back pattern pieces rather than separate. I think it makes for a cleaner and more comfortable look for the back of a garment. I’m torn on whether I should have lowered the front neck a bit. I always look at the dress and feel like it is going to be uncomfortable there, but in actuality it is not. 

My sewing queue is all summery dresses and the weather is still meltingly hot here, but I am dreaming about more cold weather garments. Have you made the seasonal switch in your crafting or not yet?
