Description

I used the Bordeaux pattern for this dress. I chose a light, linen- type fabric for this, and it turned out well. I edged the neck yoke in yellow bias tape. Since I am a size 34-36, I completed the pattern without extra seam allowances — the pattern is very fitted, slightly different than the example. Side note: make sure the neck yoke can fit over your head! I added a zipper on the yoke since I had completed it before I realized it. I also moved the zipper from the back to the right side.

    Hey clho, lovely dress! I like the contrasting yellow piping very much. Regarding the fit – I have a very narrow waist that is not in proportion with my hips and bust, so the dress is a bit loosely fitted on me. Your comment is an important remark for other users.
