I sew a dress at BCBGeneration and loved the front draping with the pocket. So I have decided to incorporate that element in my next dress from a fabric I like. I had no pattern, worked on the dress form. I like the way it came out, it’s really comfortable and easy to care for. Made of my favorite, cotton voile. The bust part is three layers, I worked a layer of white cotton between the voile instead of fusible interfacing. Fully lined, also with very lightweight white cotton.

Material Notes

cotton voile
lightweight cotton for lining

    This is really beautiful! It seems to have a Renaissance look to it :)

    This is so beautiful! I am not a very skilled seamstress, but I would love to attempt a dress like this. I so wish you had a pattern!

      Thanks! Once I figure out how to upload a pattern, I might attempt to do so. But I only have it in my size:) I’ll let you know!

    This dress is adorable! I love that it has pockets! haha I also LOVE the square neckline! So Cute!! I’ve been trying to find patterns with square necklines, but they’re hard to come by. Do you have any tips for drafting your own pattern for a square neckline?

      Thanks for your comment:) Just draft it a strapless style. Make wider straps and set it very close to the side seam of the top on the front, about 3".On the back you will have to sew it closer to the center to balance it out, otherwise it will keep falling from your shoulder. Hope it will work out:)

    Really love the styling of this! I have to break down and buy a dress form! Would make many projects much easier to fit!

      Thank you! Yes your life wold be a lot easier with a dress form, but if you want my opinion you get the traditional one, instead of the adjustable. I’m not that crazy for mine:)
