      Thank you Sky! ❤ I think flat felled seams only work for certain patterns, but they’re perfect for this one. I’m excited to have more woven tops and this one is really good. 🙂

    1. How tall are you? I’m 5’8”, and wondering how much to lengthen/shorten the pattern.
    2. Your dress is so beautiful that I ordered exactly the same fabric from Cali fabrics in order to recreate it for myself. Did you prewash the fabric?
    I’ve already made the Coram top in cotton lawn and I love the fit.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

      Hi Beth! I’m so excited for your dress!
      I did prewash the fabric before starting. I highly recommend sizing down at least one size if you use this fabric. You also will want to cut the neckband a little shorter since the fabric stretches. Allie recommends basting the neckline in first.
      I’m 5’11 and I lengthened it 2 inches at the waist l/s line and 2 more inches at the bottom l/s line. (I have a long torso, so the waistline usually sits up on my ribs. You may not have that problem though.) I also didn’t move the bust darts at all because they’re already pretty low and they hit in a good spot for me.
      Hope this helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions!
