Ready to Sew - Jolene

Pattern: Ready to Sew Jolene with expansion pack

Fabric: Rifle Paper Co Rayon From Cross and Woods


🎶🍓Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Joleeeeneeee. I finally finished my first Jolene dress #jolenereadytosew in this glorious @riflepaperco rayon. Although the fabric is a bit too light for the pattern, it worked out fine with some alterations (took in the waist a bit). I love how swooshy it is! And even though I’m never much of a fan of gathered waistlines without elastics because of my bust, this really does work pretty well! I did do a FBA, Raphaëlle made a great post about that on the blog.🍓🎶
