Auckland, New Ze...
I made this dress late last year and wore it all summer. Took this long to post!
It was loosely based on a dress I loved but couldn’t afford. I actually like this better than the original :)
I drafted the pattern myself using a general bodice block and it took a lot of tweaking, square necks are easier when you have a pattern.
The pansies look a little staged lol, but they are actually inside to protect them from the frost. Convenient!
The photos came out quite blue but the fabric is actually various shades of purple and white.
Its a soft sort of cotton, brushed on the one side, I’m pretty sure youre supposed to make pyjamas out of it.
