This is one of my favorite dresses ever! I ended up making a ton of them as bridesmaid dresses for day weddings this season. The pattern is a very basic princess bodice dress. The only adjustment I made was in the skirt. The dress is made of a quilting fabric which doesn’t drape as well as apparel fabric so I made the skirt a little less full.
This dress features a strapless princess bodice with an empire cut. The shell and lining are both made of 100% pre-shrunk cotton – I used a lightweight cotton broadcloth in natural as the lining and I only lined the bodice and waist. The bodice has boning at the seams for structure and support. It has a beautiful 3" crochet trim at the hem and and zips up the center back with an invisible zipper.
