    erdronen: I didn’t use a pattern for this dress. I probably should have, since the fit is looser. As a result, it doesn’t look very good un-belted. It’s actually kind of awkward fitting all over…

    Barbara,

    That dress was draped on the form, so there’s no specific pattern or rules, but I’ll try to put together a “how to” of the order I did it all in for you to try on a form :)
