Description

I tried out a new Indie pattern designer: Style Arc. The pattern featured in this project is for a dress with a twisted bodice and an original four-tuck skirt. It was a great pattern to work with and I was delighted with the finished dress!

    I love the zigzag print with this pattern. Very nice! I’m gonna find me something similar. Thanks for sharing!

      Oh, I’ve never thought of it before you mentioned. But you are right, my mom too had few dresses of the kind!
