Description

I self drafted this dress to recreate a dress I had seen on a fashion blog. I made the pattern by using my princess seam dress block and adding contrast strips at the princess seams, centre front, and waist. I used Broderie Anglais for the main part of the dress, accentuated with leather contrasting strips. I quite like the contrast of these two very different fabrics :)

I love the end result, and am quite proud of the fit, but am now desperate to make another version in white!

    This turned out so chic! Love the combo of the two textures.
