Description

I used the pattern “Almost Pollini Dress” by ale.b; however, instead of having the dress zip down the left side, I added two more skirt panels and had it wrap around to the front and tie. I also lengthened the sleeves so that they drape down to the end of my fingers.

Material Notes

Chocolate Brown Corduroy

Difficulty

Novice

    The only thing I didnt like about this pattern was that it is only for someone who wears around a size 4 and it doesnt have the seam allowance included, I however wear around an 8-10. So I increased the bust size and waistline. It is fairly simple to put together. I decided on a wrap around front because zippers never lay right on my body. I really like this pattern, I’m going to be making another one out of stretch jersey material, and I will have pictures up of both as soon as I find the charger for my camera.
