Description

I combined two patterns for this dress, the ‘contour bust dress and tute by miasu’ for the fitted bust and the ‘marie 9177’ pattern with a zipper in the back for the skirt.
I am quite pleased with how it turned out, considering it took me forever to make the bust fit…but I suppose that’s all part of the learning curve :-)

Material Notes

Denim fabric, cotton, blue trim, zipper

    Gorgeous, love the combination of fabrics, and how you merged the two patterns together! Can’t wait til i learn how to adapt patterns to make the pictures i have in my head come to life! ;-)

    this is just gorgeous. I am inspired to try one for myself one day – may need to get better at my sewing skills, the bust looks quite difficult!
