Description

This is the second dress I ever made. I made a Danielle before, but it was just too big and too ugly. I’m much happier with this dress. It took me some time to fit the bodice (it’s still a little too tight) but in the end I ’m happy I put more time in it than the Danielle. I lined the bodice in black and used some hand understitching to put it in. I hope to make another one in a floral print.

Material Notes

Blue cotton and some kind of grey cotton stretch
Black polyester for the lining

Difficulty

Intermediate
