Description

I found this cotton fabric which reminded me of autumn, but the colours didn’t inspire me on their on, so I bought some reddish brown cotton to match the flowers and added a border at the hem and sleeves and made a detachable belt to go with it. Just practising… :-)

The bodice is a standard princess seam bodice and the skirt is gathered at the waist (about 3 metres). The dress is fully lined (almost reversible).

Hope you like it.

Material Notes

Cotton fabric, polyester mix lining, zip and thread.

    I too love this dress and the fact it has long sleeves. Sleeves are the best!!

    I like the red trim too – adds something really nice to the frock – like a frame on a picture! I do like the flattering neckline too. Did you draft the pattern yourself?
