Description

After I finished my cape, I had some leftover pieces that were just enough to complete a matching dress.

This is a one piece dress that has the look of two separate pieces.
See it here: Sugar Plum Dress

The pattern suggests a stretch woven for the skirt portion, but my wool did not have any stretch, so I added a kick pleat to the back. I also lined the entire dress, where the pattern only has the bodice portion lined.

Material Notes

Blouse: 100% Polyester
Skirt: 100% Wool
Lining: 100% Polyester
