Wiksten Shift Dress Review

Four stars for this easy but elegant pattern! My main tips are to choose your fabric carefully, and to size down by at least 2 sizes.

I sewed up a size 14, though my measurements had me at 20. I really held my breath cutting into this beautiful rose colored washer linen. I had exactly four yards, and I barely had any scraps left!

I think the smaller size Makes me look like a long giraffe, and is my most flattering dress to date. I added 4 inches to the length. My husband had the nerve to say he hated it! I don’t understand that, and am pretty disappointed, but I love it so I will wear it.

I also made two tops from this pattern, but to keep the page load time down, I will share them in my next post. Stay tuned!
