Chic Little Number

Entirely self-drafted dress! Documentation of my process of learning to draft this year can be found here if you’re curious.

It’s pretty straight forward, just a basic bodice and skirt that I drafted, I used pleats instead of darts for waist intake on bodice and skirt.

Best of all, this dress fits beautifully and is comfortable!

Material Notes

Canadian Made 100% wool crepe, bemberg lining.
