Description

My own bodice pattern + altered skirt from McCalls 6011 pattern.
I love love love the print on this fabric!
I took time selecting which parts of the print go on what pieces of the pattern but it ended up being kind of a funny arrangement, but I still like it.
I wanted the dress to have a skirt without gathers, because I didn’t want the print to be too interrupted.
Next time I will definitely convert the dress to having back zip to avoid a lot of grief.
For more see my blog! (bernie and i)

Material Notes

The fabric with the awesome print was from spotlight many years ago (1.60 meters).
The bodice lining is a poly/cotton lawn (50 cms for the lining)
Dark brown 50cm zip that I shortened.
Navy and black polyester gutterman thread
