Description

This is variation 1 of the By Hand London Kim dress . I really enjoyed making this dress .I made a toile to begin with as I have had fitting issues with this pattern before . I re did the bodice twice ,and re drafted the straps and brought them further to the centre .I actually prefer the way the bodice looks now , and it stops the straps slipping down all the time . My pattern matching is pretty shoddy on the back of the dress but im delighted with how the pattern looks on the front . I also handstitched the lining round the bodice and added a lining to the skirt ,to give a bit more weight.

Material Notes

linen blend for shell ,
crepe polyester for lining
