The dress inspired by a dress I saw in a boutique. I loved it, and had to make one. So, I made my own pattern (I will post the pattern later) – it turned out just fine :). The neckline was too deep for my small breast and didn’t stand close to the body, so I slightly altered the original pattern with few pleates, which resulted with heart-shaped neckline. The top part of the dress (neckline and sleeves) and the bottm part ot its skirt are made from the shiny face of the fabric. The rest of the dress was made from the mat fabric’s face. Unfortunately, pictures aren’t that good to show these details.
I’ve made another variation of the dress, to see it click here. Also I posted some illustrations that describe the pattern construction process so take a look if you’re interested in drafting your own pattern.
Please note that instructions are posted as a PDF file, under the Print at copy shop section, along with the pattern file.
This dress was published in the December / January 2011 / 2012 issue of the Sew News magazine.
