I’ve had my eye on this dress for a little while and it was only when I searched the #seamworkadelaide hashtag on Instagram recently that I realised how many lovely versions of the Seamwork Adelaide dress people have made. I had no idea this pattern was that prolific. Go on, take a look – you’ll see what I mean.
I had it chosen as one of two possible dresses for an outfit from my Design your Wardrobe capsule wardrobe. Of all the outfits I put together, I thought this might possibly be the one that was a bit iffy as far as my criteria went: basically being able to chase a toddler in relative comfort without shedding my dignity. Was it too tight? Would those poppers pop? Would it be comfy enough? The Adelaide has bust darts and back darts, which are wonderful for shaping, but I wasn’t sure if that would, in turn, make the dress too fitted for running around.
