This dress is c o m f o r t a b l e!
I altered the Built By Wendy shift dress in the Dress’ book by adding 1 1/2" flare on the sides from the hem to the arm. I also divided the pattern and added seam allowances for the color blocking. I reaallly tried to be precise for this one!
I also experimented with finishing techniques, which I need to work on..
Black fabric is cotton, white is wool; both second-hand.
