In this project, you will learn how to use my contour bust pattern I have created just for you! Unfortunately, my pattern/photoshop skills are rudimentary, so the only size is about a 2-6 in US women’s dress sizes and 36-38 in Burda sizes. This may seem like a large range, and it is, but I have made this dress several times and this dress should fit in the bust area all these sizes.
You will need:
At least 1.5 yards of fabric
Something to trim the top (bias tape, piping, elastic…)
At least a 9-inch zipper
