I've also had this pattern for a while. It's not at all my normal taste, but on a whim I purchased it. I knew that I had more than enough of the orange fabric to make this dress, and something else, so I decided this would be the perfect garment to put it to use. And just to step things up, I wanted to make up version A - which I definitely did not intend on ever making when I bought the pattern. A shoulder tie?? Soooo not typical me.
Fabric: Orange synthetic... not sure of the blend
Notions: Invisible zipper.
The pattern was fun to put together. All of the pieces were pretty unique (due to the shoulder tie on one side, strap on another), so there was no confusion about how things should line up. I also liked that I didn't have to do any sleeve facings; one of my pet peeves. I hate working with armholes.
The fabric was also really great to work with. I wish I knew what it was. I purchased it at a fabric warehouse by my work, so things aren't really labeled. I have a bit left over that I plan on making into another Sencha blouse.
I probably wouldn't make this variation of the pattern again as it's pretty unique, but I'd like to try version D (the two strap version). I'm looking forward to wearing this for a date night with the hubby or a night out with girlfriends.
