Clare received the pattern, fabric and haberdashery for Christmas, it was time to sew it all up :) I was intent on doing the best job possible for this dress, so everything is finished with no shortcuts.
I used several couture techniques when making this dress (catch-stitching, hand-insertion of the zip etc) and she didn’t want buttons but preferred press studs. I did have a few problems with fitting the princess seams and she has very prominent scapulae; she has decided (now it’s finished- grrr!) that the waist is too low on her, these will all be remedied on the next version :)
Burda Young pattern 7232, view A, white polka-dotted 100% cotton, white zipper and large press studs.
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
