A little skater dress I made myself for my birthday this year. The bodice is based the ‘Built By Wendy’ dirndl dress pattern and the skirt is a self drafted flare skirt. The fabric’s a vintage cotton that I picked up in San Francisco a couple weeks back.
I did a small bust adjustment and took the back in an an inch, but the fit’s still not quite there. The neck gapes, and I think it still needs a sway back adjustment. All advice is appreciated!
The full story and links to the tutorials I used for the pattern adjustments are on my blog mollytov.com
