I used the “Kat Dress” pattern (grainline studio) for this dress. The pattern was originally named “Kat” for the bride of the wedding it was worn to, so I named this one Johanna who was the bride at the wedding I wore this dress to! I love the pattern on this fabric – the colour is so unusual but looks great with navy. The bodice is princess seamed (including all of the colour blocking! Many tiny pieces!) and fully lined with boning in the seams. I didn’t do the facing at the bottom of the skirt and I added pockets. Didn’t have to make any alterations to the pattern – fits well!
