The Acton is available in 10 sizes (!) from bust 76 cm to 131 cm and includes 2 different skirt options and 2 bodice options.
My version is bodice B paired with skirt A (without pockets) in a size E. It is a little loose fitting so I might blend between sizes D and E the next time I make the dress. I lengthened the dress a couple of centimetres - and will probably add more length next time. I love for my dresses to hit just below the knee. Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely not complaining about this version - I'm very very much in love with how this baby turned out. My favorite part is the bodice/neckline. I love that high neckline with the racerback and cut away shoulders and I'm definetely making more Actons once summer hits Denmark again, cause yes - I'm standing bare shouldered in the snow! I could also see this bodice paired with a more fitted skirt - or a drapey maxi skirt version. Yes!!!! I want all the Actons!
The other day I showed a little sneak peek of the dress on Instagram promising more info on how I would winterize the Acton. Here I'm wearing it under a belted blouse - but it also looks great with a fitted turtleneck under or perhaps styled with a warm cardi and ditto tights.
The beautiful 'Eucalytus Leaves' is from True Fabrics.
An all Aussie dress.
Brrrtt, I feel cold just by seeing your bare shoulders in the snow! But I agree this will be a perfect one for spring and summerSvarSlet
It's beautiful and youthfull (is that a word?)!SvarSlet
very beautiful! I saw another version in a Facebook group and pinned it right away, I actually pinned both the patterns from In the fold, both are lovely, so I guess I will buy them sooner or later ;-) Very nice dress you made!!SvarSlet
