We are so glad to introduce you to the Linda Wrap Dress 2.0. In addition to upgrading the look of the information package like we did for the Stephanie Skirt, we decided to make additional changes based on the amazing feedback of our development group.
If you purchased the pattern before the update, you should have received an email with the link to the new files. This is what is new:
- Updated grading: while we really thought that the Linda was to be worn very loose, we realize that most of you are more comfortable in a slightly more fitted dress. Thus, we moved the grading down one size. For instance, on the old version of Linda, if you used size 42, it is now labeled as size 44 in the new version.
- Cleaner pattern pieces: we removed the seam lines, to help making the pieces clearer. We also changed the print marks so that pages are less busy.
- Less pages in the print-at-home format: a benefit of sizing down the pattern is that it now prints with less pages, the letter format requires 28 pages (versus 32 in the old version) and the A4 format 27 pages (30 in the previous one).
The new information file contains fabric recommendations and a PDF layout for our 4 printing options. We have also added technical illustrations of the belt construction to the Resource Page since it seems to have been a bit problematic for sewists.
We very much look forward to hearing your thoughts about the changes! Tomorrow we will be back to show the work of our testers, they all did an amazing job.
