This is my first attempt at my Megan Nielsen Patterns "Darling Ranges Dress". In truth, this one was made as a muslin but because I made it in chambray (from Tessuti) it's actually perfectly wearable as is. I'm really impressed with how well the pattern worked with only very minor modifications.
The issues I had were mainly with the darts. The bodice is quite fitted and, for me, the darts were way too radical, resulting in a very pointy bust apex (for those of you who remember, think Madonna circa 1990!) This was possibly not helped by the use of chambray. Another drapier fabric may have worked better.
There is an extensive amount of information on Megan's blog about the construction and modification of this pattern posted during a sew-a-long earlier in the year.
As luck would have it, Megan is currently running another sew-a-long on her blog for the equally fabulous Banksia Top. The first topics cover bust alterations so I'll try and apply the information to this pattern. It's such cute and easy to wear dress & I'm keen to make another.
