Marie-Fleurine :: sewmariefleur's Acton Dress by In the Folds
This is a tester version of the Acton Dress, and as you can see, it turned out a little too tight! That was definitely my fault, not the pattern's fault - the sizing of the Acton is spot on. I used a lovely cotton silk, which wasn't the easiest farbic to sew, but I love the result!
This view of the Acton, with the high back and the wrapped skirt, is a little harder to sew than the version with the a-line skirt and the lower neck, and some of the flowier farbics that can be used for this dress are much harder to manage than others.
The instructions are really good, and so is the construction of the dress.
I love how special the Acton looks, and I definitely want to make another one - maybe using an easier fabric, and definitely a bigger size.
