Description

Don’t fear the fabric; that was my goal with this one. This was also an opportunity to practice applying an invisible zipper; zipper insertion has always been a challenge for me. I chose a basic A-line dress pattern to compliment this bold print. In the back view photo, note the pleating on each side of the zipper line. I added these to address the little bit of gaping that was happening around the back armhole; a fitting issue that turned into a nice added touch.

Material Notes

100% cotton; 22" invisible zipper; thread.

    Love the pattern, it would be nice to see a full length photo of the dress. It looks fabulous!

    Looks great – wish we could see the full dress! A nice simple shape that does a great job of showing off a fabulous fabric.

    This is so cute! I love the fabric—and the a-line shape is a perfect match for it!
