Description

I was a pattern tester for the lovely Rachel Pinheiro for her new upcoming pattern Brasilia. It is a wonderfully built pattern with so much potential for variation – I just loved it. I had to grade it down myself and I know the back is not quite perfect – I should have made a muslin first but I was too excited to have something wearable.

I have worn the dress out a few times now and it is so comfortable. I am planning on doing a few more of these with different ideas on the side panels – I just love the versatility of this pattern.

Material Notes

Mid-weight poly knit (it is from my stash and somehow lost its label)

    Great job, your version has such good fitting! I couldn’t get it to fit so good in the back :(

      Thanks, I think it helped that my proportion mached Rachel just smaller, yours is adorable though.

    Great fitting of the front part and nice arrangement of reliefs and darts.
