Description

This is my kiki, without buttons for the moment! I didnt realise this was a an advanced pattern until i was half way through otherwise i may have not attempted it! But it wasn’t difficult to sew, even though I’ve made a bit of a mess in places! Also I omitted the skirt linning- i found it too bulky for a salwaar kameez top!
The shoulders do slip, but like mentioned before just add bra strap tabs! I’m 5ft 3 and size 30, but the length of the pattern didnt need altering, it fits fine, just the bottom hem needed taking in slightly. I cut the pattern to the smallest size and left a inch seam allowance and the fit was fine too!
I kept the slit at the back closed and added slits on both sides of the dress for the kameez top style. Also gave it more feminine sleeves, as shirt sleeves are not suited to salwaar kameez and look horrible on me!

    this looks great.. i’m planning on making something similar to this but i’ll change it into a maxi dress, but with a low v neck line and with butterfly style sleeves…

    You sound like you had quite the adventure from making this. It looks beautiful on you and the sleeves are my favorite part!

    Lovely colours, and good work! I just love this pattern more and more, it so great to see it made up by fellow sewers! The sleeves are very cute, and all in all the fit looks very good!

    The colour scheming is great :) I was wanting to have a go at this too but the Advanced labelling put me off – I think you may have inspired to me to have a go!

    Looks great! I’m so glad to see this dress pattern made up. It’s definitely on my list to do this year.
