Description

I found this great border print fabric and made a dress out of it! The bodice is based on M2401, as I knew it fit me well already, and the skirt is a simple gathered rectangle. I also added pockets, and used an exposed zipper.

The edges of the neckline and arm holes are bound using bias tape I made out of the fabric, using the tutorial on the Coletterie.

Material Notes

Some kind of vaguely stretchy cotton?

    How wonderful, Love the painterly drippings. I was wondering if you created the fabric yourself, the proportions are wonderful. I really love the accentuated shoulders. Beautiful!

      Unfortunately I didn’t create the fabric myself – it’s from a market here in London!

      Thank you! I had to use more of the fabric to get the placement, but I think it was worth it!
