wrap top + dress VONDEL | tester round-up

Friends, my amazing testers have done it again! The wrap top VONDEL has been my most technical design to date, so I was really nervous going in to testing. I worried about the shoulder yoke being all off and the fit of the dress not being right. I had made a mistake about which sleeve I included in the tester pattern, but that was luckily an easy switch after testing, thanks to the detailed feedback these women all offered. Their time, effort, fabric and dedication has been crucial in creating this beautiful pattern that I am so proud to offer to the world!

Give it up for the testers!!

  • Lisa, sorry about the delay in responding! I do include tips in the pattern instructions about adjusting for a full (and small) bust. Perhaps you already know this, but just in case: a bra size and a sewing bust size are not measured the same. So wearing a DD bra, may mean that you are a sewing C or D cup. It has to do with the difference in measurement between your high bust and your full bust. This is all explained in the instructions under “Sizing Matters”. If you need more assistance, I’m happy to help!

  • Correction on last post: I am wondering if this pattern is easy to adjust breast size from a B to a DD?

  • I’m if this pattern is easy to adjust breast size, B to a DD?

  • Fun to see the different fabrics and views everybody chose. Cute pattern, Meg!
