My mother-in-law never uses a pattern when she sews, so I thought I would give it a go.
The dress is made up of five pieces drawn straight onto the fabric using my body measurements.
Front Bodice, Back Bodice, Front Skirt, Back Skirt and Godet
All the pieces were cut on the bias so that the dress would drape better.
The dress was meant to be floor length but cutting it on the bias I was limited on the length with the amount of fabric I had. Having it longer would have disguised the wonky hem.
