I am an advanced beginner, having done several garments most of which are Liesl & Co. Patterns now.
I sewed B6567 earlier in my sewing journey with a cotton that was probably too thick and not enough drape. It looked okay. As far as the sewing, I learned a lot and got a lot of practice. Though I preferred to have more handholding on seam finishing and tips and tricks from a direct Liesl pattern. And I still dread hand sewing, which you need to do for the facing.
So now I would like to redo that dress in a woven with drape. I know this design is similar to the Cappuccino dress. I like the B6567 design better since it has more shaping panels and I think would cover a thick waist more. I would really like to aim for the look given by the pink sketch on the cover! I don’t have the Cappuccino pattern, but looking at the old sew along, sewing seems easier and probably has more tips/tricks.
So what do you think? B6567 (more shaping, harder sewing and instructions) or Cappuccino (less shaping, easier sewing & clearer instructions)?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts/suggestions.
