Description

Based on a shift dress pattern that I got free in “Sew” magazine. I added double peplum sides, did a full bust adjustment and complete alteration to the neckline… From scoop neck to sweetheart, added homemade piping around the bodice and down the seams and added capped sleeves.

Material Notes

Cotton, zip, piping

Difficulty

Intermediate

      Thanks Mary! I have been working hard in getting a perfect fit. The fabric is pretty bold but that’s what I like! When I showed some friends the print before I made it they were looking at me like I was crazy! Lol x
