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)
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
