I use JJ’s bodice sloper/block to make the upper part. The sleeves was drafted from an old book called Pattern Drafting vol. II, published by Kamakura-Shobo Publishing in 1970. I bought the book very cheap a couple of years ago in a secondhand bookshop. The lower parts were drawn on the fabrics without pattern.
As I always like the selvedge part of a fabric, I use them as ruffles on the center front of the dress. The opening of the dress is in the back by invisible zipper. I also added a pair of invisible pockets on the side seams.
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
