Style Arc Dixie dress in the sunshine

Just a quick post today!  The sun has just been out for a little while, so I thought I'd quickly snap a couple of photos of the Style Arc Dixie dress being worn.



Hopefully these will give you a better idea of fit etc.  As I mentioned yesterday, I made a Style Arc size 10, and the only alteration I made was a 1 inch sway back adjustment. 

Beajay mentioned in her comment on yesterdays post that the neckline looked higher than on the line drawing, and you can see that it is a little higher.  It's not uncomfortably high though, and it would be easy enough to make it a little lower if you so desired.



I'm not quite sure what I was doing with my head in this photo, I think trying to flick my fringe out of my eyes as although the sun is out, it's quite windy!

Anyway, I hope these photos are helpful!

  7. it looks fantastic! And I love that you have the sleeves at 3/4 length, it helps balance out the higher neckline, for sure.

    1. Thanks Julie. I did cut the sleeves full length initially, but they were too much.
