Description

I made this dress last month to attend my good friends wedding, I also wanted a little shrug just in case it was cold. I followed Yoshimi’s instructions for the shrug, which is made from leftover lining.

Was pretty easy to make, I had to redo the bodice as the first one was too big.

Material Notes

Probably polyester from Spotlight

Difficulty

Intermediate

    You did such a nice job…this pattern looks great in that fabric. I also like your shrug; would have liked to have seen it from the front as well. :)

    Oh I like this one! I had the same with the bodice being super roomy & do the same by using a belt to pull it in, as I didnt do a fitting for this when I made it.

    Congrats on your Heidi! And like someone else said: love the shoes.

    I made Heidi too and I fought a little with both the bodice and the waist: and I still feel like it’s a little big and bulky. I solved it by adding a thick black belt that I pulled to mark the waist more.

      Thank you! yeah I know what you mean, mine seemed a bit big at the shoulders. I’m sorry your hand is broken!

    The fabric seems very fluid. I recently tried to cut polyester chiffon without success. I love every bit about your two creations here. Colors, fabric, patterns. Excellent work.

      Thanks for your lovely comments :) The fabric wasn’t too bad, it frayed really easily which was the most annoying!
