Added Jul 1, 2009
An inspiration for this dress came from the fabric itself: dots in all colors and sizes and borders in 3 different patters.
The dress is constructed from a lot of pieces – front and back skirt panels that flare, under-bust yokes, bust and neckline pieces and back top parts.
Depending on fabric’s ornament, this dress could look both casual and formal.
LAST EDIT: This dress was published on the cover of the Jul/July 2011 issue of the Sew News magazine, along with the article giving the detailed instructions on how to draft the same pattern yourself.
