A stretch cotton dress I made for myself 2 years ago. I’m making another at the moment for a friend so thought I had better get it up here too!
It has a under bust corset foundation that I made with a stretch satin so it keeps everthing in place but still moves with the dress…no black body toning knickers for me!!!! (just nice pretty ones lol)
I adapted the pattern, which is simpicity no.3673, slightly by making the back drop quite low….on the new one I’ve made it drop a wee bit more…for now anyway, its only at the rough muslin stage!
