Description

I made this dress with the intention of wearing it to a family/Thanksgiving lunch, however was not able to wear it due to the bad weather.

The bodice is cotton sateen remnant (from my M5845 with outside darts and wiggle skirt), the skirt is rayon.

I used the B6582 bodice. The skirt is from the M6349, I added half a meter to the length.

I will go up a size next time to an 8 (possibly 10 at the waist). Despite the finished measurements being bigger than my measurements, it’s a little restrictive across the bust and back.

Thank you for reading!
