Cap Sleeve Dress, Take 2 (Now with bolder print and color!)

New York, New Yo...






This is my second version of Burdastyle’s Dress With Gathered Skirt and Cap Sleeves. For this version, I managed to remove some of the neckline excess which gaped on my first try, by rotating the excess into the bust dart. I blog about how to do that here

(Oh, and the skirt is a self-drafted A-line. Next, I want to try a circle skirt with this great bodice).

    Hello everyone! I am trying to make this dress, and I am not very experienced yet! I am stuck on step 5. How do I stitch the shoulder seams? Front lining with back lining, and front outer fabric with back outer fabric; or front ling with front outer fabric and back lining with back outer fabric? Thanks for your answers.

    Saw this on your blog – it’s gorgeous – I’ve been planning a second one with a circle skirt too, think it would look great:)
