The Amalfi Dress

This is, probably, the most elegant dress I’ve made for myself and I love it! I’ve been dreaming with a dress like this and the pattern is finally available.

The Amalfi Dress is the most recent pattern by Hey June and, as usual, Adrianna nailed it.

This pattern is available from sizes 2 up to 22, with two lengths and two sleeve options, bust darts and elastic waist.

For my version I made the classic tea length and flutter sleeve (how could I resist it?), in size 2. Because of my fabric choice, I opted for omitting the pockets, but those are included in the pattern.

The instructions recommend lightweight drapey fabric and I used a viscose lawn, with a lovely drape from Stone Fabrics. It wasn’t the easiest fabric to work with, but I love the result!

As usual, the instructions are great, easy to follow and include how to make changes to the pattern, including full bust alteration. Also, on the good side, the pattern doesn’t have closures (great, right?) and the elastic waist makes it look so feminine but very comfortable to wear.

So, to summarize, I really like this dress, how feminine and elegant it is and am planning my next one. I think a Rifle Paper Co. rayon would look beautiful… 😉
