Leeds, United Ki...
I saw someone wearing a cute black dress with sort of pleats at the front and I wanted to make one! however I didn’t want to bother with zippers, buttons or slits at the hemline (lazy, I know) I just wanted something that I could throw on for work or dress up at other times. The bodice is from a vintage pattern and the skirt piece is an extended Marie skirt pattern and that’s it! This dress is really comfy and easy to wear with all sorts. CAUTION: if you don’t want to look like you have a big bum don’t make a dress like this!.lol
