Up until recently I will admit that I had no intention of subscribing to Colette's Seamwork magazine. I wasn't feeling that enthused about the monthly patterns and I didn't really see paying each month for patterns I didn't really want. Then they changed the subscription so that you get 2 credits each month that you can spend on any of the Seamwork patterns and that seemed like a better deal because there are a few patterns I quite like even if I'm not overwhelmed by the entire back catalogue. Then they had a sale on the Adelaide dress, which I really like, it was $5 for the dress and only $6 for the monthly subscription and so I was finally sold. Just to prove I was getting my money's worth I thought I'd go ahead and make Adelaide straight away!
Size wise I went for a 4 for this dress, looking at my measurements I should probably have gone for a 6 but there is a fair bit of ease included at the waistline and I find that too much fabric around the old mum tum is not a pleasing effect on myself. I know Colette draft for a fuller bust than I have too so I felt reasonably safe sizing down and I think it fits quite nicely.
