What: knee length softly draped dress with cap sleeves and cowl neck.
Fabric: black ponte knit.
Pattern: semi self drafted. I started with this Burda top pattern.
As I said I started with an existing pattern. First I added the cowl to the front pattern piece. Then I opened one side up for those soft pleats. I cut the front out with extra seam allowance and draped it on my dress form.
The cowl is self faced and the armholes were finished with a binding.
The dress might not look that great on my craptastic photos, but trust me, in real life it is to die for!
