Description

My contour bust dress! I LOVE the bodice of this dress, it fits well and looks great! The skirt was trickier…the tutorial says to use a rectangle of fabric and gather it, but as I have hips that render me rather not-rectangular, I could NOT get it to fit! I ended up drafting a basic skirt pattern from here: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/skirt-pattern-for-every-size and it made all the difference! Will actually be giving this dress to my roommate as a birthday present, but I plan to retain borrowing privileges :)

Material Notes

Navy floral cotton, navy lining.

    It looks like a very lovely summer dress! Good for you for figuring the skirt out your way – I like your version.
