Jonny is one of my favorite base patterns – a simple, sloper styled bodice that is easy to lengthen and alter. For this project, I chose to create a lovely crossover bodice, with a neckline high enough to not warrant wearing a camisole beneath. I do a lot of social dancing, so a dress that didn’t need a slip or a cami was a high priority. Also high priority was a large skirt, so I drafted a full circle skirt and used the Jonny skirt with an added ruffle as lining.
