I finished Jenna's today, but practicality won, and I left off the longer bottom ruffle that would have made it floor length. I can't imagine her getting much (really any) wear out of a floor-length dress. For real! It is still maxi length and gorgeous!
I made the pattern as written. . .almost. Well, who am I kidding?! I completely changed the construction method. The pattern has you put together the front bodice and skirt separate from the back bodice and skirt and then put them together at the side seams. I don't like the finish under the arms this way, so I sandwiched the front bodice between the two layers of the back bodice before sewing it right sides together. When I turned it, I ended up without any exposed side seams on the bodice at all.
At any rate, I love the pattern and will make it again. I have Allie's already cut out of a black and white chevron print. I think it is going to be beautiful!
