Description

I made this dress from some lovely fabric I got free at a swap. It wasn’t the smoothest make ever, but I really like the final product. You can read more about it and see more pictures on my blog

    This Dress is soooo nice. The fabric seems to be made for it. Would love to make something similar and therefore I’m also interested in the pattern you used. Thx.

      Thanks – I used Simplicity 2177, although had afew issues along the way so the centre front dart is unintentional! You could always make the bodice too big and add it in though! x

    Beautiful dress, love the pleats and the fact that it has pockets. Did you use a pattern?
