Description

I made this bridesmaid dress for my best friend. The pattern is self-drafted, using a standard Burda bodice pattern for orientation.
The dress is fully lined with a circle skirt and half-circle sleeves.

It is not a perfect fit for me, as the dress is fitted to my friend’s measurements.

For more information and a step-by-step tutorial on drafting the sleeves, visit my blog: Thisblogisnotforyou.com

    It looks lovely, did you make one in green and one in blue? Or is it just the camera flash x

      Thank you! It’sonly one dress, but the colour is just impossible to photograph. In reality it’s sort of a mix between both, more blue-ish I think.
